compiz crashes xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.4.2-9.fc10.x86_64

Updated from rawhide today, no X apparently due to kernel drm changes (something about gem). Immediately went to koji and found xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.4.2-9.fc10.x86_64 whose changelog addresses issue precisely (koji makes testing rawhide so much more rewarding!)
Now I get X but when I log in, it crashes when compiz starts. Nothing remarkable in the Xorg log (included) except the "exaCopyDirty: Pending damage region empty!" line.
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
I disabled compiz and all 3d apps (glxgears, supertux) segfault. I then tried compiz again and it crashed the x server.
Also, I'm running without a xorg.conf file. Are there any tricks to speeding up 3d to Fedora 8 speeds?
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.
Also try with nomodeset on the kernel command line (press a in grub menu). Does it help?
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.
Adding nomodeset didn't help, it crashed like before. And as I said before, I'm not using an xorg.conf file so the already included X log is for the no conf file case.
After today's updates from rawhide, I no longer get a crash with compiz, and glxgears runs without segfaulting (probably the mesa updates helped?)
Now glxgears pins one cpu like it's doing software rendering or something. glxinfo shows direct rendering supported but glxgears is getting 210FPS when I used to get about 1200FPS. In general, 3d support is pretty slow.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
