Opensuse 12.1 Gnucash 2.4.10

Guys I am on my 3rd installation of Gnucash. It works ok, but have you noticed how sluggish it is ? This was highlighted recently when I booted back into OpenSuse 11.2 and opened the same Gnucash file. I could page through the tabs without any delay at all. It seemed perfectly normal and performed any operations with ease. Contrast this with r21973 built on 2012-03-05. For some reason it hesitates when moving through tabs. It is only small but noticeable. Any ideas what may be causing this sort of behaviour ?

Looking further I notice that accounts will display very quickly while reports are slower. Menus are also opening slowly.
