Full disclosure: before running glxgears I had KDE Desktop Effects
partially enabled. On disabling them the sluggishness in scrolling,
switching desktops etc. improved markedly. I only noticed this after
sending my original post.

However the glxgears test was run with DE *disabled*.

Also, the background repainting bug is still there in KDE, but not in
Gnome, i.e. it's likely to be a KDE issue.
