    Hi Joaquin,
               Dom and I finally got the xft build to work and came across

    Firstly it takes a really long time to load now! About 5 minutes on my 1
    Ghz laptop. It's look like it is scanning the whole of my file system
    and loading all the glyphs.

    Clearly we need to speed this up.

    Next when we actually load a *.abw file it is also very very slow. It
    appears to not make font caching work although I can see all the code in
    place for some reason it is not working. It looks like it is creating a
    new font for each run, which is extremely slow.

    Have you seen these issues? Do you know how to fix them?


    Martin and Dom.
