Thanks for the tip on the auto refresh.

I upgraded my box that has an AMD k6-3 550 MHz and 128 MB RAM to
Slackware 9.0. I did have Slack 8.1 on it.
I did this to get the right gtk stuff and, to get it more up to date.
I then installed the Slack packages I had already made for xfce4-beta2.
You are right. xffm is a lot faster on better hardware.

The other box I said it was slow on is an old laptop.
Xftree is better on it.

Thank you and please keep up the good work.
