Hello and thanks to all for help,
th problem was a totally different one. I configured my .xinitrc to call 
afterstep. It was configured for /usr/local/bin/afterstep (for that's 
where my old afterstep did lie), while the new was on 
/usr/bin/afterstep. I changed it and what to tell? Everything's working 
fine, even back to the speed I am used to with afterstep...

So... Thanks for all the repleys and sorry for bothering you.

Till then,
