Perceived UI slowness...

When I'm editing an article, and I click the taskbar button for the main window, the button is immediately depressed but it takes over a second for the window to be brought to the foreground. If I'm in the main window and I click over to the article, the same thing happens-instant depression, a second later the window appears.
However, if I coolswitch the windows, it happens instantaneously; likewise, if I'm in the main window and I double click the name of an article in the treeview that I already have open, the switch is also instantaneous...
I wonder why?

Doesn't happen on my machine.

I havn't experienced exactly what you say, but some times CD's UI respondes pretty slowly. When I select an article it might for instance take almost a second for the window to repaint itself.

I'm using a Athlon XP 2200+ and I've got 512MB ram, so I don't think my computer should be the problem.
