This is weird, but the fix for my system (thanks Albert) is 
to force the AGP to PCI bus by setting the appropriate (or 
maybe inappropriate:-) option in the Device section of my 
xorg.conf, i.e:

Section "Device"
        Option           "BusType" "PCI"
        Identifier         "Card0"
        Driver             "radeon"
        VendorName  "ATI Technologies Inc"
        BoardName    "RV350 AP [Radeon 9600]"
        BusID             "PCI:1:0:0"

Haven't tried to play video clips yet, but dragging an 
xterm around the on desktop (xfce4) is very smooth now.
