Which menu style do you use.  I use sharpdevelop on a "real" XP and I didn't
notice any slowdown or flashing when using the "flat" style.  I think, the
SD menus are selfmade (for whatever reason), so perhaps there drawing isn't
as optimized as the drawing of real Windows menus and this is visible in

The 3D style menus feel less snappy, sometimes the selecition bar doesn't
follow the mouse. They also look neither like XP nor VS.NET so I don't use
this style.
