Here Composite behaves the same. With composite enabled and xcompmgr not 
running, moving windows is slow.

Only I have another problem also, although I don't know what it causes, 
because everyone else don't seem to have that problem.

xcompmgr runs, the eye-candy is on, but the screen freezes. I can move the 
mouse, and I can click on icons and the program is starting, but the screen 
won't refresh anymore so I don't see any changes anymore.

(I am using today's CVS of xc and xcompmgr)

I'm actually very(!) pleased with the progress made. Not only the last few 
days/weeks, but the complete X-Development. :-)
