Yeah, I was pretty curious about that too. I tried switching to TWM, but
only got up to about 610fps. As far as I know, everything else is set up
properly.

Ah-ha. Did a couple things:
jkoenig@note:~$ killall setiathome
jkoenig@note:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache-ssl stop
Stopping web server: apache-ssl.
jkoenig@note:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/distmp3 stop   
Stopping distributed audio encoder: distmp3host.
jkoenig@note:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/spamassassin stop
Stopping SpamAssassin Mail Filter Daemon: spamd.
jkoenig@note:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/webmin stop      
Stopping webmin: webmin.

and now:
jkoenig@note:~$ glxgears 
4305 frames in 5.0 seconds = 861.000 FPS
4991 frames in 5.0 seconds = 998.200 FPS
4984 frames in 5.0 seconds = 996.800 FPS
5003 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1000.600 FPS
5038 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1007.600 FPS
5014 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1002.800 FPS

Still pretty low, but a fair bit more respectable than 500! I suppose if
I switch to TWM, and turn off xmms, sylpheed-claws, my sw-raid arrays,
etc, I could probably get it up another 100-200.
