Recent investigations show that the slowness affects the following graphic cards:
* Intel HD Graphics 2500 (Dell Optiplex 3010);
* Intel GMA 4500 (Dell Optiplex 780);
* Intel 82945G Express.
But NOT the following ones:
* ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 Series;
* NVidia Quadro 1000M;
* NVidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti;
* Intel HD 3000 (integrated).

That tends to confirm the bug affects some Intel cards (but not all), and none of the cards from ATI and NVidia we tested.

Don't hesitate to ask if you want me to test a patch or anything else that could help solving the issue.
