e.g redrawing the preferences menu takes about three seconds here.

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965
current rawhide x86_64. (ok,intel driver is one build behind because
of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=496614)

on the same hardware F10 redraws in normal speed.

Unable to reproduce on i386.  Exactly what kernel and driver builds are you running?
Comment 2 Konrad Karl 2009-05-05 15:01:30 EDT
Ok, with xorg-x11-drv-intel-devel-2.6.0-14.fc11.x86_64.rpm 
menu redraw is normal speed. 

(uptodate rawhide with todays kernel-

I am suffering from hangs with the intel driver when playing
a movie in mplayer (already bz'ed). The last non-hanging driver
for me is xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.6.0-14.fc11.x86_64 and with that
xmms menu update is slow.

waiting for a fixed intel driver.....

Core text performance (which is almost certainly your xmms performance problem) has been fixed since 2.6.0-14 and accompanying kernel and libdrm updates.
Comment 4 Konrad Karl 2009-05-11 04:50:29 EDT
ouch, copy and paste error...
kernel- + xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.7.0-4 renders
the xmms menu fast but crashes with mplayer/xine and friends.

kernel- + xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.6.0-14 renders the xmms menu slow.
(i am not sure if i should interpret "has been fixed since 2.6.0-14" as
"2.6.0-14 should already be fine" though)
