v2.3, 2.4, and 2.5's GUI is slow for me

P: n/a

I've been asking all over the place, namely different forums. I even
e-mailed he**@python.org about my problem, but they couldn't assist me too
much.

My problem is..the GUI for versions 2.3, 2.4, and 2.5 of Python run very
sluggishly. When I type in them or move them around my desktop, it's very
slow. I have figured out that this is because of the subprocesses running.

To cope with this problem, I created an idle.txt file, and added this to the
first line of it:

c:\python25\python c:\python25\Lib\idlelib\idle.py -n

After that I saved the extension to .bat and now when I run that file, the
Python GUI opens without any subprocesses running and I have no problem.
However, I'd still really like to know how I could fix this problem even
more. I honestly don't understand why the GUI is so sluggish for me. The
GUIs for Python version 2.2 and below run fine for me. My system specs are
as follows:

Windows XP Home Edition
AMD Athlon XP 2800
nVidia 6800GT
1 gig of RAM

If anyone else could help, that would be great.

I don't use IDLE too much anymore, just for quick tests, but I noticed
this from the beginning as well. It's sluggish when you drag it around
the screen. Not sure why.
