  1. Some of the OGLES and OGLES2 demos that came with the SDK are slower on this version (xorg-server 1.12.x) compared to the previous version (xorg-server 1.10.x). My display is 1024x600. The demos were running in fullscreen. X is configured with flipchain on. Do you see the same results?

    OGLESFur (40 vs 60 fps)
    OGLESParticles (36 vs 54 fps)
    OGLES2MagicLantern (34 vs 43 fps)
