Yes, it really bites. I'd also like to know what sort of graphics card would
be ideal for working on RENDER.

On a somewhat unrelated note, is there anyone out there who could tell me to
what extent RENDER is hardware-accelerated on NVidia cards? I know it's
*supposed* to be accelerated, but I don't know to what extent, or how up to
date it is; in my case, any time I enable RENDER acceleration in
XF86Config-4 my X server hangs a few minutes after starting.
