Custom xorg.conf for ATI Radeon 7200 [R100] and 21" CRT HP A4576A
Description of problem:
For a fully updated F11 system, the background and icons of a GNOME desktop disappear after enabling desktop effects.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start GNOME session.
2. Enable desktop effects.
Desktop consists of GNOME panels on top of a completely black background. Default desktop icons have disappeared, too.
Desktop effects get enabled without said regression.
Changing the background to a different one, e.g. a solid colour, has no effect.

I have a fault which may be resulted by same fault. Hardware: Dell Latitude D610 (ATI Technologies Inc M22 [Mobility Radeon X300]).
Symptoms: When enabling desktop effect with dual head icons get streched (see attachment). With singlehead desktop effects works fine.

I have exactly same fault as Timo. I have Raedon X600 - happens with ati driver.
When desktop effects on desktop is stretched wildly, image only though, the logical icon locations on the desktop are the same (if you double click on where home should be, you get something up).
It APPEARS as though when the desktop background area is turned into a 3D object on dual head it breaks and stretches the surface's texture for reasons unknown.
Same is true when you use compiz also.

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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
