Right click on Desktop Slow in Xubuntu

When experimenting with the other flavors of Ubuntu, I noticed that the desktop right-click menu in Xubuntu appears after a considerable delay. Here's what I did to fix it:

This seems to be related to application icons.

In Settings -> Desktop, go to the Menus tab, and unselect 'Show application icons in menu' under Desktop Menu.

This should instantly speed it up - you can toggle the setting back and forth and it changes in realtime to compare. I used to have this issue but after unticking it the menu appears instantly if you can live without the icons. They could do with cacheing them or something I guess.
