Default Re: kwin: XRender "slow" (as usual), OpenGL much slower (new problem)

But maybe some component (updated) connected to the driver (Xorg, Kernel, ..., kwin?) is able to trigger these problems? Imo the high X cpu usage is kinda suspicious.)
KDE: live trunk build (some days ago; >=20090428); Qt 4.5.1 (with qt-copy patches)
xorg-server: 1.6.1

I'm having these problems for some weeks, don't know if this can be a kwin issue (anyone who knows?)
I also has the same VGA card like you (8600M GT), same nvidia driver version (185.18.04), xorc-server 1.6.1, QT 4.5.1 and KDE 4.2.2 but I have no problem with Kwin/OpenGL mode at all. Hovering mouse over those buttons only make X consume 2~4% CPU
