Interesting.  It is probably doing something wrong, or something that is
a particularly bad move on XO.

I use WindowMaker all the time on my main desktop, but because something
went wrong some time ago I held the package version at 0.92.0-5.3.  The
version currently available in Squeeze is 0.92.0-8

So, trying wmaker 0.92.0-8 in rxvt using debxo 0.5, I see entirely
different results to rxvt under kwin: 14.422s, 14.366s, 14.392s.

And for a fully maximised rxvt, 25 seconds.  That's very similar to your

You've clearly narrowed the field.
