If acceleration isn't working on a Linux host, you get a command line 
complaint.  I have no idea what kind of error reporting you get with Vista.  
Does it have an event log like XP or the windows servers?

I can tell you that QEMU with kernel virtualization is very fast for me, but 
without the kernel modules working, it is unacceptably slow.
