Description of problem:
- When rotating displays 90 degrees, major rendering issues are observed. Mouse renders correctly, background and windows do not
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- 7.4 GA
- radeon/ATI graphics adapter
Steps to Reproduce:
1. After enabling all displays, rotate one 90 degrees in either direction in the display configuration
- see attachment: corrupted-desktop.jpg
- normal display output
More likely a radeon issue than a libXrandr (given that it affects only this graphic card).
We're experiencing this too.
For us, at least, it's not just rotation - performance has also taken a dive. For example, dragging a large window is very very laggy.

I'm not sure where to put this, so I'm just going to add to the thread.
I was informed many months ago that there is a solution here: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/3177441
However, I am unable to get access to that solution. Additionally, I've been informed that there is private information relating to this bug report that is not accessible to the public.
Since there has been no public activity on this thread since it initially appeared, and at the very least, we know that Red Hat has been aware of a solution since last September, I humbly request that Red Hat make the solution public to those of us who are unable to pay for a support license.
