870 on XO1

Folks, on XO 1 with new 870 build :

1) At boot, once the animation has completed its little circle, the screen
goes black for about 17 seconds before the favourite wheel comes up. Does
this on multiple XO's.  Does not happen on os23.

2) In general, boot takes about twice as long on 870 than on os23, again on
multiple XO's compared.

3) Activities take longer to launch, flashing icon stays almost twice as
long on the screen before the screen comes up than it did on os23 for some.

Could this all be due to the file system switch, or has something else

No such issues on the XO 1.5 870.



PS did notice that gparted works on the 1.5 but coughs errors on the 1.0,
but it did this on os23 as well, and it isn't a big deal for me, as I can
partition the external cards other ways.  But if someone is expecting it to
create swap cards on the XO 1.0, no such luck.

PPS: On the other hand, there seems to be much more free space on the 1.0
after an 870 install than an os32 install
