Hmm. I've never had this problem before. I have the choice of 'Ondemand',
'Conservative', 'Performance' and 'Powersave', or 800MHz, 1.6GHz, 1.8GHz and
2GHz. Usually it's on 'Ondemand' (as I have a laptop). Even when it's at full
speed, even the home directory takes 2-3 seconds to display the icons.
