Is anybody else somewhat annoyed by the slowness of files coming up with zenity in xfce4 which is used by a number of programs. It is especially irritating when one has to attach several files to an e-mail.
I found a way around, just kill the xfce-mcs-manager. That does away with some pretty icons, however, speeds things up considerably.
If needed again just start xfce-mcs-manager once more. I put those kill and start commands in a launcher on the panel.
