Yes, I noticed the same thing on Falcon. I tried to run gcc in the
background and, while compiling something, I tried to write a text in QED.
But the keyboard response was too slow and any serious work in a GEM text
editor was impossible.

Actually QED's key response is too slow even without gcc running, just the
usuall MiNTOS stuff makes the computer slow. There's no such problem in 
normal MultiTOS setup (i.e. an AES without MiNTOS). I have no idea how to
solve it.
