Gallium is complete fail with intel. I rebuild mesa with 
--disable-gallium-intel locally, then build the intel driver against it 
(is that even needed). This works good (better than the old version).

With gallium, I only get a black, occasionally flickering screen until I 
disable compositing entirely. Without compositing it works - which 
indicates that aiglx and/or dri are broken.
