Is this reproducable? Can you repeat it after doing 'debuginfo-install desktop-effects' (debuginfo-install is in the yum-utils package)
100% reproducable. Crashes every time I start it no matter what modules I have loaded. Looking through much of the error logs I am leaning towards thinking this is an issue with the vboxvideo driver module. I'll do a debuginfo run tomorrow and see what that will turn up.

In the case where glXChooseVisual() fails, an uninitialized value for context is passed to glXDestroyContext(), which is almost certainly triggering this crash.
