Exactly. The problem disappears when I switch off the desktop effects.
It seems, that after this upgrade something happened with desktop effects.
BTW. My another machine , which uses  "Display controller: Intel Corporation
Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev
03)" also started to experience problems:
After KDE session starts, I get the message (as I it rmember, translated from Polish)
"Desktop effects are too slow and will be switched off".

Previously both those machines worked good :-(.
