Vincent (not me, but the other Vincent) improved a bit the performance of gnome-system-log lately. As he's not on the planet, I thought it would be nice to share his results with more people. He's measuring the launching time when opening a 2.9MB log.

Release 2.12.2 2.13.1 cvs - Nov 5 cvs - Nov 8
Launching time 43s 5.7s 2.9s 2.1s

Vincent: I'll buy you something to drink once you're back in France :-)
