Just one more thing about gnome being more slow/buggy on gentoo - it might have been about your CFLAGS (-O3 uses more ram and is a bit more buggy but is however faster when it comes to CPU usage, while -Os uses less ram/diskspace and is less buggy, -O0 is the slow but definitive working option...) and USE-flags (lots of USE-flags = bunch of features, but more code). Just a thought, it may aswell have been other reasons.
