screenshot showing corrupted graphics (option "RenderAccel" is "off")

Sorry, I have to correct myself again (I hope this is the last time). After
writing the last comment I kept an eye on both symptoms (massive swap-usage,
graphic corruptions) and now I can say that both symptoms are still present
with option "RenderAccel" "off" – up to a moderate extent…

· swap-usage
When RAM-usage reaches around 40%, swap-usage begins to increase continuous.
For example when I open a window (nautilus, gedit… whatever) swap-usage
increases, closing windows/programs doesn't have the effect of decreasing
swap-usage. Even when I change workspaces swap-usage increases. After some
hours of work I'll log out and in again to empty swap & get the normal
performance of my system again.

· graphic corruptions
I see some minor corruptions which are quite stable. For example the graphic
you see in the middle of the screen when you change workspaces in Gnome looks
crappy quite often and when it started once it will stay like this (I attach
screenshot 1 showing this corruption). I'll also attach another example, I had
to close the program to get rid of the corruption (see screenshot 2).

In Summary: option "RenderAccel" "off" doesn't solve any of the problems I'm
having with this graphics card but it extenuates the symptoms to an extend so I
can work with the computer.
