There are no effects (minimizing, present windows, etc) with compositing 
turned off, so there can be no comparison.

Moving windows around is fast and smooth in both cases.  It's 
compositing animations that have become very slow.  When I enable the 
Show FPS effect, the FPS goes down to 40 when I trigger an animation.

Nope.  It's slow right after booting the machine.
