Description Henning Fleddermann 2010-07-09 12:38:49 UTC
After updating to 6.13.1, things like opening a right-click menu or a file-dialog (which fade in) became extremely slow. I bisected this to commit 30591320ec46e491ba20904cc64f3405b51c6505.

    kms: add support for the MSC swap & sync API
    This patch is mostly a port over of Intel ddx code for
    MSC support. It needs a radeon KMS module with version
    2.4 which has the query for hw crtc id.

So apparently this is related to the swap&sync stuff. My card is a Radeon X1900 XT. Versions of other relevant software on my system: KDE 4.5 rc1, kernel 2.6.35-rc2, Xorg-Server

Is this still an issue with current software versions?

I am only on CC, but I think that this is not an issue any more at least for me.
