This is the same abuse box (Dell Optiplex GX280) with an Intel 915G 
integrated card as before. I am pretty sure it's the driver as reports about
the upcoming 2.8 version sound like a lot of junk with 915 series is 
getting fixed. The error is the same one as I'd mention a few e-mails back.

Attached is the error message (snapshot1.jpg) when I click Apply to 
Enable desktop effects.

Ran glxgears from terminal and it runs really well. Has some error 
message when I close glxgears, not sure if it's relevant but attached 
it anyway.

glxinfo output is in the intel-915g.txt file.
