ati radeon - corrupted screen for 3D (glxgears, compiz) as of 8 Apr 2009

Description of problem:
Regression as of ~ 08 April 2009:
WHen compiz enabled I now get a corrupted yellow/white set of lines on my desktop -- which is unusable. compiz must be disabled.
This is with latest rawhide updates
but originally occured back around 8 April at which time I had:
//excert from email
Sure the *current* versions I have are:
Previously it would have been working with
I originally had slightly earlier versions including the -52 kernel and .5 mesa as pulled from the rawhide repo -- and then fetched the latest koiji when I saw things broken.
glxgears is broken too.
original email documenting problem on 08/04/2009:
I've been using compiz for a fair amount of the time since F11 alpha, and tracking RH updates on my T60p (V5200) system. kms disabled.
I noticed that in the last few days the radeon/mesa/kernel/drm driver updates have involved some API changes so I suspect you may be doing a slightly disruptive change?
I've seen compiz seemingly break now -- once started my screen is corrupted yellow/green lines (unusable) . without compiz its fine.
The change has been somewhere between the -46 kernel and latest compatible ati/libdrm and the -52 update, and continues with the current koiji levels as of a few hours ago.
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, if available) 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.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one) 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.
I just upgraded to latest:
and I no longer get the broken compiz / glxgears.
However whilst X can be used all day with compiz disabled, having this (or other 3d apps) active introduces instability -- randomly X will "die".
Can't see anything in kernel log, but (new) error in Xorg.0.log.old is
this is a new error
Will restart failing box, check koji, reset xorg.conf, capture log and add as attachment/comment
Created attachment 340338 [details]
basic xorg.conf for dual screen
Created attachment 340339 [details]
X output including stacktrace
checked koji -- no relevant updates it seems (just kernel -101). Have gone back to compiz disabled for now.
- fusion-icon: kill my X server (i will file another bug)
- compiz-manager or desktop effects: got a graphic corruption like no screen repaint scrolling in nautilus, firefox and others
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS690M [Radeon X1200 Series]
No xorg.conf file
Otto -- I think the -6 build was a bad one. It was unusable (even without compiz/3d) so I backed off to -4. I then saw -7 on koji which appears to fix the issue (a fix was backed off).
Reminds me I need to retest -7 for this original problem.
In case you need a link:
I see -8 is now there. I'm using -7.
This is a dupe of bug #494737
It's fixed in 7.5-0.13
Yes fixed. can be closed.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
