Maybe the content of this section "DRI" would be interesting to look at as

Maybe this is not very good, I don't know. For X, it is just a warning...

This site you indicated seems very good, that's all I can say.
Do you know Armagetron? Does it work nice in your config?
And the screen saver you've been talking about, maybe its buggy? Do other

Good luck whatever you try now. I don't think I can help you out. I hope
you'll find your way.
