There've been some optimizations and an effort to make visible loading
more consistent. I'm happy to hear this seems to indeed help.

Hey Liviu,

gcr-3 upstream dropped support for GTK+2, so you have 2 choices:

· Use --enable-gtk3 and build with GTK+3.
· Get the patch in lp#1026441 to build GCR with GTK+2 support

There's current lack of a maintainer for this patched GCR and upstream
doesn't want to shoulder the work due to lack of manpower.
