Yes it is a driver problem. (My nVidia card died, so I got the
old ATI card out of the draw. Will buy another nVidia card after
submitting a bug report or two.)
And, yes, it was set to CPU+, now set to slim.
In the mena time adding this,
Option "EnablePageFlip" "False"
to xorg.con makes things much more civilised. Will experiment
with other settings.
Thank you Mike.
