Default Re: Slow AA text rendering in KDE

I'm experiencing this issue again here, things were ok when I first switched to the modular xorg in late december but recently the cpu usage has gone crazy when antialiased fonts are scrolling. I can make the rest of the system unresponsive by grabbing a scroll bar and sliding it up and down really fast in konqueror which causes 100% cpu load on X. If I do this same thing in firefox the cpu load is shared pretty equally between firefox and X and never touches 100% total but is rather high, 80%+.

Card is a 6800gt with the 1.0.8178 drivers.

The only recent changes here that I can point a finger at is updating qt to 3.3.6 and some xorg-server updates. This is on a gentoo ~x86 install.
