Lazarus via a remove X session in TOTALLY unusable!! It is clearly a
bug somewhere in the LCL-GTK2 widgetset, because other GTK2
applications like Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, Nero for Linux, gEdit,
Nautilus etc all run fine with acceptable speeds.

I can't remember how Lazarus with GTK1 runs over a remote X session. I
would really like to develop remotely on our 64bit Linux server, but
currently can't. This is one of the reasons I really want to get the
LCL-fpGUI widgetset going - so remote development can become a
BTW: fpGUI based applications also run really nice over a remote X session.

And no I don't want or like VNC sessions.
