native driver slower than vesa

here's the deal... freebsd-7.0, GENERIC kernel, Xorg from the installation discs, i810 driver in xorg.conf... configured Xorg with X -configure ... when running xfce4 (and seemingly any Xorg stuff) everything works very slow... when i launch xterm for instance it takes about 30 seconds to show up... the computer is relatively old and slow: pentium 4 1.80GHz, 128mb ram - 8mb for the integrated gpu; but xfce4 is a lightweight environment... also, as working time progresses the slowness also as well seems to progress...

when i switch to vesa, everything works considerably faster, more stable and usable... however the problem i experience with vesa driver is that once i switch from X to console and want to go back to X by pressing alt+f9 the screen becomes black and nothing is there, so i have to use ctrl+alt+backspace to kill server... if i start X again I also get black screen with nothing in there...

attached is my Xorg.0.log zipped because the forum won't accept it as is... please help me out thank You

spasibo bratan, arachnid
i've figured that the actual video in my system wasn't i810 but 845g... as arachnid suggested now i use intel driver instead of i810 in and it works alright

the only problem i experience with the newly installed intel driver is that it seems to ignore my Modes lines in xorg.conf and therefore doesn't change the resolution... any ideas?

Look for clues in /var/log/Xorg.0.log
