the video card is intergrated ATI Radeon X1250, and X0rg.0.log see 2 (EE):
 grep '^(EE)' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(EE) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad Unable to query/initialize Synaptics
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"

That's hardly suspect: those two lines appear in my Xorg.0.log too. I have the 6715b, with ATI Radeon X1200, and while fglrx couldn't be made to work at all, the radeon driver works a breeze.

Hmm... If I were you, I wouldn't bother troubleshoting the issue at all; I'd check if the slowdowns appear in another user account too (just to rule out potential user misconfigutration), and then install Squeeze on a spare partition from scratch, just to rule out upgrade glitches. It may well be that the issue won't appear in a fresh installation.
