No, not really, as I've not been using Mandriva at all lately and don't  
have all that old mail concerning it.  You might be able to pull up  
something with a Google search for the terms
font cache system slowdown
or similar, but I'm afraid I don't have anything specific to offer.  Just  
a suggestion as one place to consider looking, as it reminded me of the  
problems in cooker as recently as a few months back.
