Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnome-games

I have two accounts on a dapper machine. Please not tat the computer by
itself is a 1 GHz Via C3 (roughly equivalent to a 600MHz PIII), so it is
not really fast. However, on one of the accounts, aisleriot takes about
3 to 4 seconds to start, while it take 30 seconds on the other.

I created a new account (test). On this fresh account, aisleriot starts
quickly (3-4s), But after I copied the .gconf directory from the "slow"
account, it became slow. It appears that this is related to the file
~/.gconf/apps/aisleriot/%gconf.xml (the problem disapears when i remove
this file).

On the slow account, this file contains:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<gconf>
        <entry name="game_file" mtime="1161632308" type="string">
                <stringvalue>klondike.scm</stringvalue>

and on the "fresh" account (fast), it is as follows:

The "slow" account has been my account on many systems (mainly mandrake
10 and several ubuntus), so it has some history, which might explain the
problem.

Also, please note that on the slow account, it also takes several tens
of second to resize the screen! appart from that, the rest of the game
gives the same impression of speed on both accounts.
