Thumbs down XF 4.3.99-2 & 2.4.23 Radeon 8500 Slow 2D DRI Enabled & Working


Hello all !

I've Radeon 8500 64 MB card and have quite annoying problem - DRI is working properly, but resizing or moving a window (I'm using IceWM, tried Gnome, KDE - same results) or scrolling quickly a webpage in mozilla causes quite high (45-70%) cpu impact (Athlon XP 1700+ & 512 MB DDR 266), I tried fglrx drivers, but nothing changed and I'm now using 'radeon' module, glxgears gave me 1800 fps with almost no cpu usage at all.Please, help me...
