Same here. I reported I sometimes got the same problem.... But such
slowness doesn't occur very often (I have experienced it 2-3 times
since I use Revolution, that is a year or so). Slowness is usually
highly correlated with (1) the number of days my computer has been on
( I am one of those who doesn't switch of her computer overnight) and
(2) the number of times I have run a program in which I made a stupid
error which caused some perpetual looping, with ctl-. required to
interrupt it. And yes, other programs get slow as well.
