[plt-scheme] Appalling performance of DrScheme on Windows

I have seen this, too, on an iMac G5 with about 0.75 Gigs of RAM.
I noticed this after leaving DrScheme idle over a weekend then trying
to maximize the application to use again.

I definitely use the Help Desk search feature, quite frequently.

Thanks to all who have provided information so far!

One extra question to those who see bad behavior when DrScheme has been
idle for a long time: do you use Help Desk's search feature?

I ask because a Help Desk search goes through a servlet (using a local
instance of the web server that runs through pipes instead of TCP
connections). I wonder whether servlet session time-out could have
something to do with the problem (either in the web server or in
MzScheme's support for the web server).
