openSUSE 11.1 brings EXA as the default accel. method.

The performance of my laptop is far better with XAA, but it has bugs now that
turn it unusable, and I understand that its been deprecated and unsupported.

Always at the logging screen (KDM) after I enter my password and submit, the
screen truns crazy for a cupple of seconds, twice, one after I submit my
password and when I guess compiz is starting.

Also when I leave the session and I have a terminal active KDE ask me if I
really want to turn off/reboot without leave of the active session, that
screens looks creazy too.

Sometimes in my desktop session, I have saw this visual noise too.

I'm attaching 3 videos showing the problem, I'm also attaching
'/etc/X11/xorg.conf' and /var/log/Xorg.0.log'.

When I change to XAA the performance is fas better and this distortions and
"visual noise" does not happen at all.
