noticeable lag between when I type a character (especially into my
mailer) and when I see the echo.  It's not quite the same as what
you're seeing, but I've been wondering about scheduler changes.

I had this issue months ago after updating to Xorg 1.3.0. Not sure if this works with the nVidia driver, but:

  Option "AccelMethod" "XAA"

In the "Device" section was the fix for the intel driver.
