Open-Source Setups

Has anyone else noticed that setup dialogs for open-source software have become agonizingly slow? It's like the screen is being drawn over a 2400bps modem every time I interact with the GUI at all.

Here's an example - I placed Task Manager below the Firefox setup window and moved my mouse around over the setup window. The CPU usage for setup.exe jumped up to 89%. That's all it takes - just mouse movement over the window, and there's something intensive about that? What the heck is the code trying to do?
