  any kde plasma effects load 100% cpu

Status in “mesa” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Yestarday i've updated my kubuntu (i update system nearly every day)
  and today i found, that any plasma animations causes high CPU load and
  immediately disabling kwin effects. After enabling by alt+shift+f12,
  any plasma animation drops kwin effects again. X-restart as well as
  system reboot didn't help. If i disable stability check in desktop
  effects settings, kwin hangs with high CPU usage for a long time after
  initiating any plasma animation.

  Those of effects, that not related with plasma animation (kwin
  translucancy, wobbly windows) are OK.

  I took a look for install logs and found mesa-* there. Then i've downgraded mesa-* to maverick version, and all seems ok after that. Then i saw this in changelog for mesa:
  == 7.10.2-0ubuntu2 ==
    [ Felix Geyer ]
    * Add 114_intel_dri_renderer_string.diff: Re-add "GEM" to the dri renderer
      string of the intel driver. Removing it breaks KDE's detection for the blur
      effect. (LP: #753370)

  I have intel card and maybe this change is the cause.
