Same here.  X is fast now!

Interestingly enough, my video card (which reports the same version
as the post mentioned above) takes a 40 MHz mclk, not a 100 MHz one.
I also had to turn off backing-store in X - otherwise I got strange
graphical glitches (like the twm menu coming up blank until the options
were highlighted with the mouse).
