X-Server 1.5.0 very sluggish

Tried X-Server-1.5.0 yesterday with the Radeon driver. It was extremely 
sluggish in that after something was clicked it would take 2-3 seconds 
before X did anything. Even hovering over window menus the highlighted 
choice trailed behind the mouse pointer.

Scrolling in a Firefox window was normal, but changing tabs had a 2-3 
second delay. Minimizing/maximizing windows also had the delay. Typing 
in a console window had no delay.

Glxinfo reported DRI was working. Glxgears gave normal results. I tried 
both XAA and EXA (no difference in performance).

X logfile had nothing exciting.

This morning I went back to 1.4.2 and everything is back to normal.

Anyone have any ideas?
