I can't do the INTEL_DEBUG part, since I've got a Radeon GPU, but I did make an
Apitrace (without DynamicLights). That is however 1.5 GB in size and the
apitrace trim command is now running for > 20 minutes (I checked with qapitrace
which frames are outside the menu and passed that with --frames=<START>-<END>
to apitrace trim). Is there a way to get a reasonably sized chunk, that would
help you, in a speedier manner? Otherwise, this might take a bit longer,
especially since I guess you'll want an Apitrace with DynamicLights as well.

In the meantime, I've attached a screenshot, which shows the framerate drops.
It seems to get worse, the longer you play, but that might just be imagination.
The screenshot is scaled down from my native resolution, because the bug
tracker won't allow the larger file.
