My question wasn't whether the work around of turning it off was
working, I assumed that. What I was asking is, if you turn on cursor
animation is it still slow?

The reason I ask is because I suspect these are related. Something is
bad with your drawing, and I suspect it is some bug in the
Gtk/Gdk/Glib/Cairo stuff that does drawing the display. The same badness
(miss-matched libraries?) may be causing the tooltip timeout to be
ignored. There is a binary for GNU/Linux which comes with its own set of
libraries, I have tested this on a 32-bit system and it worked just
Please say if this

works correctly for you. (You unpack it and then execute the script, see an earlier thread from a Ubuntu user who
had trouble with Ubuntu's mangled offering).
