Since you seem to have played a bit with that, I've got a stupid
question bugging me:
For my system (currently ati with XAANoOffScreen), the XAANoOffScreen
lets me toggle good console perf vs. good firefox/thunderbird perf, with
the other one darn slow. Isn't there someting like
XAASensibleOffscreenPixmaps that avoids the bad cases? (or is it hackable?)
Thanks in advance,
