BTW, if I launch epiphany/firefox from the command line, the program takes about 2-3 minutes to launch and then I recieve the following output...
** (epiphany:3598): WARNING **: An error occured while calling remote method: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
I only have seen performance problems with these two applications since changing my home dir to be an NFS mount. Anybody have a clue as to what the problem might be or where I could dig for more information?
