Glad I finally read this thread. Yes, I too have had the slow status bar issue... I hadn't really thought too much about it but it does appear it started since I put 4.95 on. Additionally, sometimes the phone is slow to unlock (from Widgetlocker)... not getting ADW redraws or any of those old memory problems coming back, just these specific instances where the phone is unresponsive for a few seconds.
I'll just hang with it for now, if an update is coming soon that helps it.
