Exporting to gif and jpeg is tooooo slow

Hi Group

I have problems with the "Export" command to gif and jpeg formats.

For example

p = DensityPlot[x+y, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1}, PlotPoints -> 30, Mesh -> False, 
      ColorFunction -> Hue];

and then

Export["test.fmt", p, "fmt", ImageSize -> 400]

If fmt=pdf or eps, the result is instantaneous. With gif and jpeg, it never 
ends. With lighter plots (produced by the Plot command) it works but it 
takes a crazy amount of time.

For the same reason I cannot save a notebook in html.

I use Mathematica 4 under Linux and I have tried two different machines 
(very different configurations: different distributions, different 
networks...) with the same result.

Thanks for any suggestion.
