    If you use an unpatched Xserver then it does not matter, but U patched the Xserver to speed up GNOME - a very bad choice - and that introduced visable delays till you get an updated image with KDE4. When you see artefacts before drawing the correct image then it is definitely a fault by U 8.10. This is not the case with 9.04 anymore. dist-upgrades can hurt nvidia drivers when xorg core/mesa packages are updated, thats correct. In that case you need to reinstall nvidia drivers. My script already activates dkms, so kernel updates are not problematic anymore.

    Thanks, I was wondering about that. In that case, archlinux uses an unpatched Xserver, which explains why archlinux+gnome+compiz+fglrx is slower than ubuntu+gnome+compiz+fglrx.

    Fixed 8200/8300 and fullscreen flash performance? Sounds good, time for another try.
