Searching backwards for ' = 3$' in less gets me this bit:

socket(PF_FILE, SOCK_STREAM, 0)         = 3
connect(3, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path=@"/tmp/.X11-unix/X0"}, 20) = 0
getpeername(3, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path=@"/tmp/.X11-unix/X0i\1"}, [20])
= 0

To me that looks like a socket to the current X server.

ls -l /proc/<pid>/fd/ gives me "3 -> socket:[1218659]"
the first socket emacs opened.

Both say about the same yes.

emacs   11410 gaute    3u  unix 0xdd478000      0t0 1218659 socket

unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTED     1218757  11410/emacs

Precisely :) 

So emacs is waiting a lot on X..
Particularly while doing something related to one enormous font.

But I can't say I've noticed any particular slowness otherwise..

And what related to X could have been disturbed by my moving of the
system.. 
The xorg.conf is default and as simple as can be.

My first intuition was that X somehow has saved, or relies on an
external "pointer", to a "video device" that is no longer there, and
emacs relies on some info about screen size that is now wrong or
missing.

Guess I could try to reproduce the problem in some other program that
relies on X... but what?

or I could try to start emacs with a remote X server in different ways.
Perhaps I could sidestep gnome somehow, and see if that's related.

But I ramble :)
