Subject Re: Remote X11 performance

It's probably because all drawing in Pivot is double-buffered, so bitmaps are being sent over
the wire rather than graphics primitives.

We could potentially provide a way to turn this off - or maybe there is a way to detect a
remote X display and automatically turn it off?
