#60 Re-re-re-redraws on Macs

Every M# release I've tried on Macs have suffered from the same problems:

(1) Takes forever to fire up (and this on a G3!)

(2) Re-re-re-redraws! Why does this client repaint the whole window so often? It used to do a repaint every time I moved the mouse over a button; M8 stopped doing that, but when I click on a link, it repaints the entire existing window like two or three or even four or five times before going to the page!

I know, I know, "submit a bug report, Anonymous Coward". But I don't really know whether I'm the only one seeing this problem or not ... can I get a witness?

I can see that things are improving, but these 2 things are pretty much show-stoppers for me. Oh well ... back to iCab 1.6a ...
