I am running KDE 4.2.2 and I was noticing very large delays in changing tabs in
konsole. Switching from one console to another would take upto 2 seconds. Which
was not what I wanted.

The large desktop size was because my (big) external screen can be rotated and
I wanted to have a 'Virtual' to accommodate both orientations.

Using KDE in Xrender 'enhanced' mode did not seem to improve the situation, but
I have done no timing tests.

I will test if xcompmgr improved the problem. What 'modern' benchmarking tool
do you suggest to use?

And I did not complain that the performance is slower without DRI, but that
after the commit the performance is _really_ slow.
