Are you by any chance using Mandrake, or have the kdm login manager 
installed? If so, the problem is likely to be X being reniced by 
default, and you might like to try this fix:

Adjust the -n level from -10 to 0 in the file /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers so 
the last line looks like this:

:0 local /bin/nice -n 0 /usr/X11R6/bin/X -deferglyphs 16
