Every time I suspend my computer and then wake it up, Xorg consumes 100% CPU if I move my windows, refresh a web page in browser or even working in terminal. But Xorg is okay when nothing is changing on the screen.

Additional info:

* package version(s)
I've got Xorg 1.10.4-1 installed and my GPU is intel GMA X3100, on a 965GM motherboard, Lenovo Laptop.
xserver-video-intel is installed and I can startx without xorg.conf.

* config and/or log files etc.
the following entry is the diff result between /var/log/Xorg.0.log before and after suspend:
> [ 14611.962] (II) AIGLX: Suspending AIGLX clients for VT switch
> [ 14615.475] (II) AIGLX: Resuming AIGLX clients after VT switch
> [ 14615.550] (II) intel(0): EDID vendor "APP", prod id 40030
> [ 14615.554] (II) intel(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines:
> [ 14615.554] (II) intel(0): Modeline "1280x800"x0.0 71.00 1280 1328 1360 1440 800 803 809 823 -hsync -vsync (49.3 kHz)

What's the status with current kernel, mesa, xorg-server and related drivers?

I've also got this problem on my Intel card. Firefox also eats much CPU if it's started. Compiz and Xorg become busy when moving windows, so does kwin.

I'm always using lastest packages from testing, and this problem has occured for months.

I also have this problem with Xorg 1.11 & Catalyst 12.2

Anything new on this? I've fresh installed my system, and the problem still exists.
All packages from testing: xorg-server, linux-3.3, mesa 8.0.2, xf86-video-intel 2.18.0
