No it's not a regression. Not in Wine at least. I went back to older 
versions and it still painfully slow.
Of course it could be some change in CSS. I also checked with older video 
drivers and results the same.

The major slowdown comes from ... SterchRect. And even with that disabled 
FBOs are still slower then default.
