Yes, I do, and this is sometimes slow on its own, but this is not the 
only source of the problem. I'll often have DrScheme running but with no 
open windows; if I click on it in the Dock after having let it sit for a 
while, it comes to the front with its very restricted menu set, but 
won't even show me a dropdown menu for a while, and opening either a 
Help Desk window or a regular DrScheme window takes forever.

I have 1GB of DRAM. Surely I don't need more than that? It's true that I 
usually have lots of things running, but you're supposed to do that with 
OS X. --PR
