Hi all,
I have a quite similar problem, but it affects all windows.
I'm using opensuse 11.0 beta3 (which ships xserver with a Radeon 
9200SE (rv280), so by default aiglx and composite are enabled, and any window 
resizing is very very slow, no matter if I use compiz or not as window 
I have tryed using XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 before starting X but it doesn't 
Is there any fix other than disabling composite?

Don't see the world through a window, be open{source}minded, and be free :-)
