Yep... at least to me there is no clear error showing in the log :-? 
(neither warnings nor problems for enabling 3D acceleration).

And provided you seem to be using a recent -and customized?- kernel 
(Linux yoda 2.6.37-2-amd64) and also an updated Xorg server (1.9.5) 
upgrading any of those components does not make much sense, right?

What is the exact behaviour you are experiencing? Do you feel the desktop 
is sluggish or a concrete application is not running smooth? Did you 
enable desktop effects? BTW, what desktop are you using?

The more data you provide, the better for other people can tell you some 
hints :-)
