I do not know if this is a bug or not but there may be a problem with cinnamon. I've installed Mint 14 on my laptop (Acer Aspire 3680) and it is very, very slow. At first I had some programs running like update manager, vlc, nemo, etc. So after closing those programs it was still slow.
Before using it I have some settings changed like another theme (mint glass) and change the login screen. In these settings there is an option to change the session on login. I choose the cinnamon session. This resulted in a cpu use of, like the title says, 50% to 60%. Also memory use is "high", it was 116 Mb for the cinnamon process. After noticing this I changed the session back to Xclient-script. Now the process is normal again, cinnamon is using about 44,1 Mb and between 3% to 6% of cpu.
Again, i do not know if this a bug or my laptop just can't handle mint 14.
