It seems I need to amend my findings. In my first try I just had
and I tried again with
Option "NoAccel" "yes"
I thought those would be equivalent, but apparently not. Or I did
This time, Firefox didn't seem affected any more. GVim was still
affected (it may well be a separate problem).
I also copied /usr/X11R7/bin/Xorg over, and its associated modules
directory, and started this with the command
startx -- /usr/X11R7/bin/Xorg5.1 -config xorg.conf.5.1
where xorg.conf.5.1 contained (among the normal configuration) the
module path for the 5.1 module files.
This also helped Firefox, but not GVim (!).
I verified that GVim still worked fine on my other machine (which is
fully 5.1 + the same latest pkgsrc). So that is a bit weird.
Xorg.0.log contained among other things:
X.Org X Server 1.6.3
Release Date: 2009-7-7
(II) intel(0): Integrated Graphics Chipset: Intel(R) Mobile IntelÂ® GM45 Express
(--) intel(0): Chipset: "Mobile IntelÂ® GM45 Express Chipset"
(==) intel(0): Using EXA for acceleration

Option "Accel" "Off"
Option "NoAccel" "On"
Option "Accel" "false"
Option "Accel" "no"
