 Thanks a lot for the information.
 I've checked NetBSD-5.1rc2/amd64 with KDE4 from pkgsrc-2010Q1 (again on 945G 
 and G33) using EXA acceleration. I can confirm that the session doesn't crash 
 anymore, however the problems with distortions and invisible panel remain.
 To investigated this behavior somewhat further on I've installed 
 NetBSD-current on a machine with a Radeon HD3000 graphics adaptor using 
 KDE-4.4.4 from pkgsrc-current. Even there I see those problems with 
 distortion and invisible panel. (I've tested both radeon and radeonhd.) So I 
 assume that this effect is not Intel specific. It's more an issue of the 
 interaction of KDE4 and the EXA-acceleration.
 I agree that it does not really make sense to switch to XAA by default. At 
 least in the case of the Radeon driver only EXA acceleration is available.
