Wrt. to the bug, it seems the reason that X acceleration doesn't work under Ubuntu is that it doesn't work under Chrome either. Chrome doesn't use EXA (there's no mention of EXA in Chrome OS' Xorg.0.log). It seems that the nice effects in Chrome OS are achieved by simply creating a full screen OpenGL ES application that contains the background, panel and all the windows, completely circumventing the need for EXA.
