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.

It seems that these problems are unrelated to the original topic of this
thread anyway.
