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.
