You're probably right.

I was disabled all the way.
I tried with both enabled and disabled setting, it didn't help.

Thanks for a tip!
I don't know what is mozilla.debian.net (main page is blank), so
I installed iceweasel 3.6.7-1 from experimental instead.
It scrolls better then 3.5.11-1 - at least, I can't see it redrawing rectangles.
