A couple of questions....

Do you do an update from one SuSE release to another?

Do you normally keep your /home between releases? (probably)

When you installed RH, did you use the same /home? (prolly not)

You might be viewing a long-increasing list of things that your /home has in
its settings, etc... that make things slow.

And you might want to go through the run-level settings to see what is getting

I've been using SuSE as long as you have but I always do a fresh install and
haven't noticed any major change in system speed.
