Description of problem:
I get X crashes regularly, but not reproducibly. It tends to happen most often when scrolling a large document (with okular, evince or OO.o) or when clicking on a contact in skype. It doesn't happen everytime though. This is the backtrace (which is the same every time). It is similar but not identical to bug 487534. :
*** glibc detected *** /usr/bin/Xorg: double free or corruption (!prev): 0x0a415238 ***

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not - intermitent, but regularly when scrolling large documents or clicking a contact in skype.
Steps to Reproduce:
Just to say I have found a document that when opened with OOWriter (3.1) always causes this crash on my machine. I can send by personal mail if it would help.

Well, you can try it ... my email is mcepl at domain redhat.com.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I am not sure if this is the same cause of my X crash, but I had frequent crash when I was writing a homework. It's getting pretty annoying... This always happens while scrolling a large PDF in Okular.
I can also reproduce it every time. After the crash my memory consumption is drastically higher than before.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a large PDF file (mine is 5 MiB)
2. Scroll trough it a few times (from end to beginning and back up again)
3. X will crash
4. After log in high memory consumption visible via htop
I am also using the radeon driver (my card is a X800).
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command
yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'
Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
