Glad to see you fixed it, but a question are you running in DRI3 mode?

No.  It I am sure it defaults to DRI2 mode.  (Pretty sure anyway.  I
no longer have immediate access to that machine.  I'll see it again
soon enough though.  If I learn otherwise later I will update this
with a correction.)

However the benchmarks I have seen (phoronix site) don't show a
compelling reason to enable DRI3 for me.  The most pressing thing that
machine will be doing will be the web browser.  So I will let it stay
with the defaults.  But perhaps others should try it and benchmark and
see if it benefits them.

Probably just me but the font rendering seems better and the screen redraws seem faster.
The reason i enbaled it was it's supposedly more stable and secure in how it access root.

I just found my T60p was running only in DRI2 mode and a few simple changes
to xorg.conf enabled DRI3

in device section set DRI3 to True is all it needs.

I assume you haven't seen any stability issues in DRI3 mode?  If not
then that is good to hear.  Maybe they should make that the default
mode moving forward.

It only made it in 2014 for the R500 series driver so it's kinda been ignored.
It's been totally stable for me
Thanks for mentioning that DRI2 is the default and DRI3 may be
optionally enabled.  That is a good tidbit to know.
