Expected results:
To not get messages file flooded by this error

Additional info:
I have found bugs https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=494838 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=501836 and tried all suggestions in bug 494838 and have found no solutions to stop this issue. I have also posted on Fedora Forums http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=230389 and have found multiple users having the same issue. Most of them are resolving this by rolling back to the previous version of Xorg server, this didn't work for me either. I have Compiz running and use the kvm/qmeu kernel 2.6.30.5-43.fc11.i586.
Please do something about this.
I amwilling to post any logs etc that is needed to resolve this problem.

Found it and it's resolved, for me anyway, it was a problem with Compiz closing this bug
