RE[6]: Big deal...

If I remember correctly, these window managers only work with 3D acceleration turned on--what happens if you use 2D-only drivers?

If you don't want to use proper drivers, you don't really have the right to complain that things don't work well for you.

And secondly, doesn't that only cover window moving and resizing? What about the contents of the windows?

Classical problem with X was that stuff moving over your window caused bad artifacts (typically leaving a blank area until repaint was done). This doesn't really happen anymore. I don't know what you mean by problems with contents of the windows, everything seems to work fine for me.
