Unfortunately, the 20070628 patch did not make any difference.


I tried various patches from that directory (aren't most or all of them
included in the 20070628 patch?), but none of them helped either.

This problem could be very difficult to track down.  Like I said, it
definately effects emacs and firefox being "drawn" on a remote computer.
Ping times, however, are not that bad:

PING 56 data bytes
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=0. time=0.287 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1. time=0.279 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=2. time=0.196 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=3. time=0.201 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=4. time=0.159 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=5. time=0.148 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=6. time=0.150 ms

Also, wget gets good throughput when retrieving files.

It just seems to be X traffic which is extremely slow.  Using the old
Linksys 10/100 PCI NIC, emacs comes up virtually instantaneously.  Using the
integrated Realtek 8111B, emacs takes 10 seconds to draw.

Thank you very much for trying to help.
