My 855GM is currently unusable with KDE and the EXA default: Icons are
shown incorrectly, as are most fonts; it looks like half of the pixels
have been set to transparent in a checkerboard pattern.
I don't see any rendering artefacts with my Q965, but scrolling text in
terminal windows (manpages, etc.) has suddenly become slow and jerky.
Setting "AccelMethod" to "XAA" fixes all these issues.
