I can confirm the bug, and I can confirm Mathias Buren's workaround,
posted 2008-08-19: upgrade Nvidia driver and add performance tweak to
xorg.conf. With two caveats.
I installed the newest nvidia beta driver successfully, and followed
this thread http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=118088 to
set up initial pixmap placement.
Caveat #1: adding that command to .xinitrc didn't seem to work, I had to
run it from the command line. I'm not 100% sure .xinitrc is being run.
Caveat #2: the improvement, while marked, is not a complete fix for this
bug. Two sites I used to compare:
1) Slashdot, jump into the comment threads and scroll. The fixed control box on the left causes a noticeable slowdown normally. With this bug, slashdot comments are tolerable again.
2) http://www.bnrmetal.com/v2/search.php?name=black+sabbath is a site posted to mozilla bug 201307 as a test case for that bug. It speeds up considerably, but is still extremely slow.
