I upgraded xorg in debian/unstable. The system is a dual LCD monitor setup.
Linux main 2.6.32-trunk-686 #1 SMP Sun Jan 10 06:32:16 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux


xserver-common                        2:1.7.4-2
xserver-xorg                          1:7.4+4
xserver-xorg-core                     2:1.6.5-1
xserver-xorg-dev                      2:1.7.4-2
xserver-xorg-input-evdev              1:2.2.5-1
xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd           1.2.5-1


xserver-common                        2:1.7.7-8
xserver-xorg                          1:7.5+8
xserver-xorg-core                     2:1.7.7-8
xserver-xorg-dev                      2:1.7.7-8
xserver-xorg-input-evdev              1:2.3.2-6
xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd           1.3.0-3

Now scrolling error messages in vim after a compile is slow
like a 300 baud modem. Xterm also has really slow scrolling.
It used to scroll real fast.

In Xorg.0.log i get:

   (WW) RADEONHD(0): Failed to initalize EXA; disabling acceleration.

How do i fix?
