Description Matěj Cepl 2008-03-30 06:24:59 EDT
Description of problem:
When running with i915.modeset=1 composer in the Evolution gets so many
artifacts that it is basically unreadable (see attached screenshot).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[matej@viklef ~]$ rpm -q xorg-x11-drv-i810 xorg-x11-server-Xorg evolution kernel
[matej@viklef ~]$ uname -a
Linux viklef.ceplovi.cz 2.6.25-0.163.rc7.git1.fc9.i686 #1 SMP Thu Mar 27
09:56:04 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[matej@viklef ~]$ 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open composer to create new mail in Evolution (or reply to the existing mail)
2. touch a text anywhere in the body of the email
Actual results:
observe a lot of artifacts making the composed text unreadable

Expected results:
no artifacts and world peace :-)

Additional info:
without i915.modeset=1 everything works as expected
