Cursor skipping/freezing when rendering pages in Chromium
I recently install OpenBSD 5 on my laptop, and I like it - all my hardware works fine now, and it's quite snappy.
However, I've noticed that the cursor freezes every couple of seconds when rendering web pages in Chromium. This doesn't happen when I use Firefox; but for Chromium the cursor just *stops* every second or two, and mouse clicks don't register. Not horrible but kind of annoying when multitasking.
Does anyone know what causes this? I suspect Chromium is trying to do some hardware acceleration stuff and not quite succeeding, but if so I don't know how to turn that feature off.
BTW I have direct rendering disabled - it's badly bugged in 5.0 (and every other *BSD version I've tried), causing X to be sluggish and crash a lot on Intel chipsets. Fortunately disabling it doesn't seem to impact 2D performance, or if it does the impact is negligible.
