This reminds me of the time a few years ago when Alan Cox ran Nautilus under strace. He didn't like what he saw:
I find that developers (at least here in the US) tend to have very fast machines and upgrade them frequently. Do you think that this might be one of the causes, i.e. the developers might not notice these issues since their HW is so fast? If that's the case then I'd expect OLPC to provide a lot of useful feedback. Running in a resource-constrained environment tends to make efficiency problems more "itchy" than they are on monster HW.
