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

In this case I will try a kwin revision from around the 4.2(.2) (or the one from 4.2.2 if it compiles) release and see if this helps.

btw. regarding PowerMizer: Indeed for normal desktop usage most of the time it stays at the lowest level (0). But even in most cases the expose-effect works smoothly at the lowest level, so changing button images should not be too hard?
