Default Xorg slow after upgrade

Hello I've recently upgraded my system and I found that Xorg redraws the screen
very slowly. "top" shows me that "X" process takes up around 95% of the CPU
while I have Intel Core 2 Duo.

What's wrong with my system ?

I have the following installed:
kernel 2.6.30.7 #3 SMP (without PAE)
xorg-server-1.6.3.901-r2
xorg-x11-7.4-r1
xf86-video-intel-2.8.1

I've also successfully migrated to X.org Server 1.6 and libxcb 1.4 as written
in official gentoo documentation.

great thanks for any indications

Xorg.0.log shows something interesting? Cause I had similar issue and
found strange messages there....

did you also rebuild all the drivers, select the correct opengl implementation
and restart X?

I have no problem: I'm using some of your items, but not others.
Perhaps that will help you pin down the cause.

I am using

kernel 2.6.30.9 i686
xorg-server 1.6.3.901-r2
xorg-x11 7.4-r1
xf86-video-intel 2.8.1
hal 0.5.12_rc1-r8

Also have some unresolved issues with windowmaker-0.92.0-r8 not
accepting background images on workspaces, and glxgears results lower
(by half) than I had with xorg-server-1.5:

-> glxgears
2095 frames in 5.0 seconds = 418.739 FPS
1800 frames in 5.0 seconds = 359.967 FPS
1881 frames in 5.0 seconds = 376.091 FPS
2097 frames in 5.0 seconds = 419.294 FPS
2097 frames in 5.0 seconds = 419.286 FPS
1887 frames in 5.0 seconds = 377.349 FPS
1891 frames in 5.0 seconds = 378.111 FPS
1911 frames in 5.0 seconds = 382.009 FPS

PS: I have fully recompiled, relinked, etc. all that is related to
graphics.

Are either of you using KDE-4?

I get this too, it's caused by plasma-desktop (top says it's 35% cpu) which
makes X block on some IO (100% of one cpu).

Killing and starting plasma-desktop fixes it for me.

No I only use a window manager (windowmaker); ultraportable laptop. The
result from glxgears used to be twice as much what is posted above when
I had xorg-server-1.5.

PS: Just realized that my imagemagick "import" application is not
working (this adds to the list of unresolved issues I currently have
with xorg). I can copy a section of my X window but the resulting image
saved by import is just a black rectangle (imagemagick-6.5.2.9)
