Got this too on a T41 with rawhide up-to-date as of 2009-09-10.  Maybe a mesa thing not a gnome-shell thing?  I also get glyph corruption after having run gnome-shell twice; not sure if that's related or independent but I haven't seen it before on this machine.

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2009-09-10 23:40:51 UTC
Dave, is the error we're seeing:

mutter: radeon_cs_gem.c:121: cs_gem_write_reloc: Assertion `bo->space_accounted' failed.

something that's mesa's problem?


Comment 3 Dan Williams 2009-09-10 23:42:24 UTC
The T41 has an Radeon Mobility M7 LW with 32MB of VRAM.

Also the ati driver version:

I have a *T42* actually, not a T41.  my bad.

Comment 5 Dan Williams 2009-09-11 00:12:56 UTC
Fixed by http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=131131 but of course r100 has additional issues.
