I have the same chipset, and with 2.6.29-rc8, compositing in KDE was 
unusable (with 2.6.28, intel 2.6.3 and UXA enabled it was fine).

About the colors: I found a message on a mailing list about it and a 
patch that was supposed to fix it, but it didn't help at all. Also, KMS 
would freeze the display (or the whole kernel, who knows) when exiting X 
sometimes and it would cause kernel oopses. KMS is only cool on the 
surface (the native resolution framebuffer, non-flickering X start and 
instant console switch are nice), but the whole implementation is immature.
