Firefox illustrating the font rendering problem (captured via xwd)

Description of problem:Occasionally, especially while scrolling, in Fc10beta I get font corruption, causing snow to be rendered instead of fonts. This happens in applications as diverse as firefox and gnome-terminal (I have included a screenshot of Firefox doing it).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel version, all packages are current as of 2 nov 2008 (via yum), if it is relevant, my video adapter is "ATI Technologies Inc Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955 (PCIE)" (this is a laptop)

How reproducible:
Sporadic, happens every so often while scrolling text or swapping to an application with a fair amount of text, scrolling long enough in any given apps eventually produces the behaviour

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open something with a lot of text
2. Scroll around
Actual results:Snow replaces some of the text

Expected results: No snow, desired text
