Default X Hogs CPU with Geforce 2 MX400 PCI

Hi !

I'm using the latest version 1.0-7676.
When using X (normal desktop. XFCE with minimum process) sometimes X hogs CPU at 100% when doing some fast-graphics actions (i.e. Changing desktop, browsing some pages, diplay of email).
Software used is ThunderBird, Firefox, and Aterm. (Someitmes Amsn). Xf-desktop and Xfce-panel.
Hardware is a P4 3.0 GHZ HT, 1GB RAM (ecc), Onboard Video Disabled, pci slot 1 = NVidia Geforce 2 MX400 (BusID 4:5:0) , last slot SB128PCI. (all other slots, are pci-X unused).
Linux distro is FC4, kernel 2.6.12-1.1456_FC4smp, modules are as follow :

Module
nvidia
ipt_state
ipt_REJECT
iptable_mangle
iptable_nat
iptable_filter
ip_tables
ip_conntrack_ftp
ip_conntrack
ppp_mppe
ppp_async
crc_ccitt
ppp_generic
slhc
shpchp
snd_ens1371
gameport
snd_rawmidi
snd_ac97_codec
snd_seq_dummy
snd_seq_oss
snd_seq_midi_event
snd_seq
snd_seq_device
snd_pcm_oss
snd_mixer_oss
snd_pcm
snd_timer
snd
soundcore
snd_page_alloc
tg3
ext3
jbd


Xorg.conf is minimal, with this modules :

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "ddc"
Load "extmod"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx"
Load "type1"
Load "vbe"
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "RENDER" "Enable"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Option "NoBandWidthTest" "True"
Option "RenderAccel" "True"
Option "NvAGP" "2"
Identifier "Card"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400]"
BusID "PCI:4:5:0"
EndSection


(Tested without those extensions/options, and NVAGP in 0,1,2.. same results).

when this happens, X is unusable , keyboard, and any local action(mouse works tho), and i'm forced to restart the system (remote ssh works).


Is this card too old for this driver ? If so, which driver should i use ?
Is not , what can i do ? nv driver is real slow.

Thanks

Option "RenderAccel" "True" , seems to be causing the problem. (Yeah.. when i disabled the first time, i restarted the system with it enabled again.)

Well... it seems was my fault.
