Hello,
After update I've noticed that gVim becomes slow (mostly on scrolling, visual mode highlighting) especially with large window - up to 3200x1200 in my case. I took some testing/searching and now I found the problem: gVim is much slower when emerged with USE="+gkt3 gtk" then with "-gkt3 gtk".
I don't know if this should be treated as a bug or it is expected, however it might be worth to point out. My system is very old (lenovo T400) with external r600 graphics card so it is by all means slow for today standards.

Could You please comment on the issue and tell me if any other tests should be done? Maybe reporting this as bug?
Thanks in advance,
Michael Widlok

It's probably to be expected. Programs have to be designed for Gtk3 for it to work well; the result when GTK2 software is shoehorned into it is usually problematic like this. Just keep using the default and ignore it.
