Lotus Notes 8 - Performance or Perception ?

Thanks to Darren, I found a link to this on Dogear, and followed the guidance to increase my Notes 8 JVM heapside - it SEEMS to have improved the performance and responsiveness of the client, but is it just me ? Am I seeing what I wanted to see, or is it just perception ? Red pill or blue pill ?

I increased mine from 256 to 1024 and have noticed the UI to be more responsive. Now I need to set it back to see what it "was" like. But from what I can tell it does seem snappier.
One problem that didn't go away for me was redraw problems - regions on the screen becoming unresponsive (clicking does nothing). Andrew Pollack found some info regarding GUID handles that may or may not resolve this. I've yet to try it but it is worth investigating.
@Bruce - I've used it at 1GB throughout today, and it definitely seems quicker ( I'm using Notes 8.5 beta 2 on a Thinkpad T60p dual core with 3 GB ). Will try it on my Ubuntu / 8.5b2 disk tomorrow.

@Jerome - I occasionally see this, but more so on Windows than on Ubuntu
