Thanks Jamie for your detailed reply. The only thing I have changed is
that I switched from Debian-sid's XFree86 to Ubuntu's X.org. In order
to enable shadows/translucency I also had to exchange KDE 3.4 from
Debian to Ubuntu because of the required composite manager which (as
far as I understand) is part of kwin (in Ubuntu, but not yet in the
Debian kwin package). Unfortunately, I can't easily switch back to
give it another try because after a re-install of the whole system I
did not install XFree86 at all anymore. However, like you recommended,
I will check later today if there is something else running in the
background which I am not aware of right now.
