Thanks Sergio. It works great.

Funny but works great.
I have a redundant OS partition where I tried carefully to upgrade one
step at a time. At some point I was convinced I did something wrong with
config files because it seemed as the upgrade I did on the secondary OS
partition was going well while staying with mesa 6.5.2-r1. When I was at
the point of simple upgrade to some KDE apps I stopped going that slow
and eventually I lost the direct rendering capabilities. Upgrade to mesa
solved the problem. I was happy to find that the driver
xf86-video-i810-2.1.0 is working fine after all (it solved resolution
problem and crt output problem when in dual display).
Below a list of apps I installed after the last time direct rendering
worked. I wonder why any of those could ruin direct rendering.
