This is weird, but the fix for my system (thanks Albert) is=20
to force the AGP to PCI bus by setting the appropriate (or=20
maybe inappropriate:-) option in the Device section of my=20
xorg.conf, i.e:


Section "Device"
=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0Option =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 "BusType" "PCI"
=A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 Identifier =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 "Card0"
=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0Driver =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 "radeon"
=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0VendorName =A0"ATI Technologies Inc"
=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0BoardName =A0 =A0"RV350 AP [Radeon 9600]"
=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0BusID =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 =A0 "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection


Haven't tried to play video clips yet, but dragging an=20
xterm around the on desktop (xfce4) is very smooth now.
