Screenshot of xmgrace with active modesetting
Description of problem:
For a fully updated "rawhide" system, button labels are incomplete after launching xmgrace.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot X with kernel modesetting.
2. Launch 'xmgrace'.
Certain buttons are empty or show character fragments only.
Buttons are rendered correctly.
No artifacts appear after booting system with kernel option "nomodeset" for both acceleration methods "exa" and "xaa". Thus, the issue is a pure modesetting problem.

I have just checked whether the issue was still present, and as of xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.12.2-4.fc11.x86_64, it is resolved.
