No problem. The issue there is that screen to screen copy isn't
accelerated yet, and at 32 bpp there are a _lot_ more bytes than
on the 8 bpp cards. So, my 8 bpp card is a little slow when
copying---the 32 bpp card needs serious help. I'll be looking into
this one pretty soon, I think. Especially since it is bothering
me quite a bit.
I've noticed that there are some differences in the terminal
programs, too. E.g. xterm uses copyArea and Eterm doesn't. (And
hence Eterm's scroll a _lot_ faster on the current X server.)
