I havenĀ“t read the whole thread yet, but from my recent point of 
knowledge, I would encourage you to have a look at the driver you use 
for your hardware. Check them and please post it here, maybe this helps.


PS: Do you really want KWin, or could you also accept another window 
manager like sawfish? This could be a slim alternative.

Have you tried SUSE Studio? Need to create a Live CD, an app you want
to package and distribute or create your own Linux distro. Give SUSE
Studio a try.
