 It took quite a while, and every time I obscure the window
it hangs R while it redraws, but that all seems as expected.
The rest of my system seems to be running fine while it works
on that (one core is pegged at 100% CPU, but the other is
handling everything OK).

Linux bolker-lap2 2.6.27-15-generic #1 SMP Tue Oct 20 06:52:09 UTC 2009 i686

Ubuntu 8.10
for what it's worth, I'm not running a window manager with any
fancy screen effects (don't know if that would matter??)

R 2.10.0, stock Ubuntu installation
