Yep, correct - here it is again - just had to log out of KDE, and after 
logging in again, everything was slow as hell.
I didn't fiddle with the msi settings, just rebooted the machine, and 
everything is fine again.
So there must be something that works the first time X is started, but 
upon restart stuffs up. Like some lock or reference which is not freed.
