This is the ThemePainter otion. If your video card doesn't support
OpenGL, then it will be very slow, as you've seen. The fix is to change
to the qt painter. You can do it via command line:
mythfrontend -O *ThemePainter*=qt
or under the Setup | Appearance screen, Paint Engine. Or you can modify
the database directly.
