That is just a starting point of my optimization.
4.3.0-52 release should be more impressive :)
> Takuma Murakami made an improvement to the multi-window code in the

> 4.3.0-50 requires 7 seconds to start xfig and there is lots of screen
> flashing during that startup process; other X Servers on Windows did not

> no longer any screen flashing.
> Takuma's changes are great! :)
