I'm assuming you've turned on the appropriate xorg configuration
options to enable the correct acceleration
and none of that helped? I forget what they are, but I'm sure someone
will chime in.

If you are one of those people with a crap graphics card (or drivers)
I have been working on getting a strange hybrid compositor working
that I'm assuming should be much faster
so that you can have simple compositing to give translucency without
any stupid effects at all.
Because really, the only essential feature of a compositor is
translucency, everything else is just extra guff.
(Ironically, its working perfectly except for translucent windows...)

But none of this is relevent to the gnome-session discussion, so we
shall move it to a seperate thread.
