Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 520910
Rendering glitches with R200 and KMS

Description of problem:
With KMS enabled, vertical scrollbars in GTK apps are consistently misrendered. Other rendering errors also occur, although not as often (scrollbar buttons use cyan instead of black, etc.).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot without nomodeset
2. Start a GTK app (Firefox is a good candidate, but anything with tall vertical scroll bars tends to do it.)
Scrollbar graphic is corrupted (see screenshot)
No display garbling.
