Subject: How is it possible ???

Hi

I have a gentoo installed and it works very well.
Without X it start from boot to login in 15 seconds,
and it uses about 15 mb of ram.
Ok. It's very fast and "cheaper" than Slackware and
others......

Now I have installed gnome ( 2.6.0 ) and it's very
strange..........
Only with GDM started (before to login) the system
uses about 85mb of ram, and (the gdm) start 3-4
seconds slower than slackware.........the situation is
worrisome......

I insert the name and password so gnome
starts.................and even gnome starts 6-7
seconds slower than slackware and the ram used go up
to 140mb.
Now the situation is disastrous....

How is it possible ???
Why this horrible performance ???
Is it a guilt of gnome 2.6 ???

My emerge info as follow:
