Have you updated this machine since installing F9a? Similar bugs to this were fixed recently (in the past 
couple of weeks).

Could you make sure your system is updated, retest, and include the version number of the following 
compiz, kernel, xorg-x11-drv-i810, xorg-x11-server-Xorg

Comment 2 Paul Walmsley 2008-03-21 12:53:48 EDT
Thanks, I will try this with Fedora 9 beta.
Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2008-03-21 18:13:00 EDT
Let us know then.
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2008-04-06 09:50:02 EDT
We recently fixed some glx crashes.  Please be sure that this doesn't happen
with xorg-x11-server- or later.

I can't reproduce this any more - closing
