CVS is significantly better in performance.

Version 0.9.6+ was a development, pre-release version (which the + 
indicates) and is a point in time release that we cannot readily test to 
see what the problem is. Any version with a + on the end is not stable 
and problems should be addressed by upgrading.

I think that it would be best to upgrade to at least 0.9.7, which is 
beta, but stable (not bug free). If you wish to help develop the 
application (I saw on your web-site that you are a Java developer) get 
Eclipse 3.0 (or some other IDE) and connect to CVS to get the latest 
source and update frequently. Even if you don't help develop it, keeping 
current and letting us know the problems you encounter is very helpful.
