fglrx slows down Desktop window handling extremely

fglrx-installer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

Handling windows (especially resizing and maximizing) became extremely slow (approx. 2 seconds), when I activated the proprietory driver fglrx for my ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics card. This problem does *not* occur, as long as I use the linux-driver.

BTW: I freshly installed Ubunty Jaunty Jackalope from a live-CD (i386 32 bit).

I have done some google-research on this and thus found out, that I am not alone with this issue. Unfortunately though, I did not find a solution on the internet yet.
