The few bits I've verified in Ubuntu 05.10 are the same as in FC5t2,
so perhaps that isn't a problem.  I'll do future measurements in
Ubuntu, probably.

There are some rendering problems in Firefox; to see them,
run firefox 1.5 under wine, then log in to; you'll see black
streaks to the left of the text entry areas.

Firefox also seems to render slowly; it's tempting to run wine under oprofile
and see if that finds the bottleneck.  cf.
