Not sure about those, upstream might be using those values for a reason,
I would prefer to have the discussion happening upstream rather in a
distribution specific level, I would be in favor or a slightly lower
delay there too

I tried changing those I think the animation make things look much
smoother and nicer, I'm against this change, the sliding is quick enough
when the delay is set to 0 and the animation doesn't go in the way

agreed that the current behaviour is weird, 1 pixel looks alright
Vincent, what do you think about doing such changes?
