Ok, I've done some tests yesterday night on my home system :

Patch fixes the right click menu popup delay (it is almost instantaneous
now) but as expected, background redraws is still slow, which is causing
some performance problem when moving a window quickly over background,
creating or destroying window, but there is nothing we can do for that
at our level.
