Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
Thank you very much for the response.

My real xorg.conf is longer, but the problem I described can be reproduced with
this config. The motivation of using "fbdev" rather than "radeon" driver is the
"Rotate" option. The bug, however, does not depend on "Rotate"...

I have experienced this bug on:
ATI Radeon X1300 Pro
And also on:
nVidia Quadro NVS 285
But *not* on:
ATI Radeon X1300 Pro
The freedesktop.org bug mentioned above is using the sis driver. Therefore this
looks like a core X server bug introduced somewhere between 1.1 and 1.2.
You are right. Closing as duplicate of bug 332791
