      Well....that first set of numbers I posted, with the 17fps
      results.....that was with *no* 'load "dri"' line at all in the
      XF86Config file. I had to add it tonight, to get my faster numbers.
      For some reason, my XF86Config file did not even have that line, not
      even commented out.

      Go figure....
