Good idea, I stopped following the thread when the ratio signal/noise
went too high. Amazingly, that thread didn't reach the Godwin point yet, did
it? ;-)

Tracking slownesses is not easy. Maybe you could use the GNOME's system
monitor applet to see if the amount of IOWait eaten time explains why
you feel your desktop as slow (IOWait grows when you the CPU is busy
communicating on buses like for instance USB but also internal disk
buses or channels). From Xfce panel, you can run it through an XFApplet
instance. Make sure you set the IOWait to a different color value than
the other Processor colors.
