Thank you, this is really helpful. Just one problem: how do I make the taskbar 
show only the windows on that particular desktop/viewport? Now it shows all 
of them. 

It was a problem with Beryl as well...

It is Intel GMA 950 Gfx (so it is written on my Asus A8F laptop surface) :)

Not quite sure what PCI interface is, though. If you need any info that I 
could gather by running some shell commands and pasting their ouptut, just 
tell me what to do.

Yes, that is very true. So great that Kwin will support 3D effects in KDE
