SHR first impression : it's slow ?

This is apparently an issue with recent SHR/FSO, my not quite perfect
fix was to go into the illume settings thingy (i.e. the wrench menu) and
set the framerate to 5 rather than 30, turn off drop shadows, and to
change the render mode from software to software_16.

I don't have the freerunner nearby, so I can't check where in the menu
you find these things, but I think the framerate is at the bottom of the
first menu, the drop shadow under "appearance" or similar near the end,
and the render engine in the advance tab of this? Can anyone confirm?
