What graphics hardware and DDX are you using?  With both Radeon, it's definitely not slow.  A bit flickery.  And if I make a window wider than my desktop, I can't grab the right edge or corners to resize it.  And I'm assuming it's known that when dragging the top or left edges, or that corner, it's the opposite side that moves.

hw: i915GM, cpu: Pentium-M Dothan
sw: current git versions of kernel/xorg/wayland

Resizing a window by grabbing the right and bottom border of a xorg window running under control of weston does work as expected.

Grabbing the left window and trying to resize changes the right border of the window.

Grabbing the top border and trying to resize changes the bottom border of the window.

Resizing a xorg window is _very_ slow, takes several seconds to complete.

Resizing glxgears makes the background transparent, the gears stay opaque. That can be fixed by clicking into the window.

to be more precise:

Pentium-M Dothan 2GHz running on an Aopen i915GMm-hfs mobo with 2GB RAM.
Graphics hardware: i915GM

> A bit flickery. 

A bit? ;-)))

And the window borders disappear / reappear serveral times during a resize.

This should be fixed with the new Xwayland.
