 It took quite a while, and every time I obscure the window it hangs R while it redraws, but that all seems as expected. The rest of my system seems to be running fine while it works on that (one core is pegged at 100% CPU, but the other is handling everything OK).

for what it's worth, I'm not running a window manager with any fancy screen effects (don't know if that would matter??)
