I think there are some issues with performance, particularly around the ledger 
even when using a release build not debug. I have definitely noticed that 
just clicking on an entry to mark it cleared causes a screen refresh which is 
very slow. It doesn't seem to matter how many entries are in the ledger.

My test KDE4 machine is a fairly slow 1200MHz pentium III and it is quite 
interesting to watch how some of the screens refresh. Allan mentioned 
entering schedules and when overdue ones are entered at startup there does 
seem to be a lot of screen redrawing going on. I've also noticed that when 
switching to the institutions screen it appears to get drawn twice, first 
slightly further down the screen to where it should be and then again in the 
correct position.

I should add that I totally agree with Allan about this not being a complaint.
