It runs fine so long as I don't try to steer Tux - but if I hit J or L
a few times, the frame rate drops to about one frame every 10 seconds,
sometimes I can hit Q and get out of the game - other times the mouse
cursor stops moving so I can't kill the game.  One time, X-windows
crashed out.

This happens both on my SuSE 6.2 AMD K6 400MHz/Voodoo-1 and on my
SuSE 6.3 AMD K6 266MHz/Voodoo-3.  I'm running fvwm2 window manager.

It doesn't seem to matter whether I run windowed or fullscreen.

But if I don't hit any keys at all, it always runs perfectly.
