Description of problem:
Desktop effects, noticeably "minimize animation", "magic lamp", "glide" (not limited to these) are jerkier and slower than they should be. This was compared to Chakra Linux with same Desktop effects settings on the open source driver radeon with VSync and OpenGL 2 shaders disabled. Hardware is AMD 965 BE 3.4Ghz x4, 4GB RAM (512 shared Vram), AMD 880G integrated chipset. 

How reproducible:

This is some rather weird kind of bug. When I have 'Show FPS effect' enabled, every transition (magic lamp, in this case) is fast and good and not jerky. As soon as I disable Show FPS, the magic lamp effect is jerky again. There is definitely something wrong.

Does problem persist in latest images ?

Let's hope that everything works ok in Desktop Fresh R3 and will be even better in the coming Desktop Fresh R4.
