Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable desktop effects

Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided

file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file

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.
Same update batch broke desktop effects for me too, but it turned out to be
kernel-184.108.40.206-12.fc8 not xorg-x11-server-Xorg-220.127.116.11-42.fc8 package.
Downgrading xorg-x11-server-Xorg to 18.104.22.168-40.fc8.x86_64 didn't make any
difference, but booting back with kernel-22.214.171.124-137.fc8 made desktop effects
work again with both the old and newer xorg-x11-server-Xorg.
Fedora 8 x86_64 with all updates on a Dell XPS M1210 with Intel integrated card
and stock drivers.
reassigning this to kernel since that seems to be the culprit. I tried deleting
my xorg.conf, and that didn't help.
I guess this is a duplicate of #436871, though I haven't been able to try the
new kernel (126.96.36.199-34.fc8) yet.
Sorry I meant #433728
This seems to be a duplicate of #437234.
Fixed by kernel 188.8.131.52-34.
