[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: gnome-shell
Version: 2.28.1~git20091117-1
Severity: normal

I normally use compiz, but decided to give gnome-shell a try.  However,
when I loaded simutrans, which is a fairly graphic-intensive program (it
uses SDL but not OpenGL), it runs much more slowly than under compiz.
The difference is easily noticeable: whereas simutrans normally takes
about a second to load a saved game, under gnome-shell it takes two to
three times that long.

Another example is meritous: there is noticable lag in the graphics at
some points; the rendering is not smooth as it is under compiz.  This is
present even when displaying the splash screen and menu (look at the
speed of the background animation).

My graphics card is

  00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
  00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

I am using i915 with kernel modesetting on.

If you need me to provide more information or test something, please let
me know.

I don't use gnome-shell anymore, so you can feel free to close this.
