abrt 1.0.9 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: compiz --ignore-desktop-hints ccp --replace
reason: Process /usr/bin/compiz was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)
Bug Notification Icon came up immediately after switching Desktop Effects. Compiz effects were working previously. Updates came in Tuesday 4/20 and Wednesday 4/21 since I last tested effects. I also installed Gnome-Do to test out effects. Tried a second time after switching back to Standard effects and reproduced bug before filing.

Thanks for the bug report. Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available), output of the dmesg command, and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link above.
Thanks in advance.
Assigning to mesa as this appears to be a problem with the experimental gallium driver.
Mesa team, feel free to move it back if you think I am wrong.

Thanks for your response. I don't know if attaching those files will help you at this point because my desktops effects have been working again since the update on Monday, April 26th seemed to solve the problem.
Files that were updated that day were:
Apr 26 18:48:43 Updated: xorg-x11-server-common-1.8.0-8.fc13.i686
Apr 26 18:48:44 Updated: xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.8.0-8.fc13.i686
Apr 26 18:48:46 Updated: coolkey-1.1.0-14.fc13.i686
I just checked a forum comment I made, and, it was indeed after this update that I got desktop effects back. The abrt error seemed to have disappeared after the update of mesa-dri-drivers and mesa-dri-drivers experimental on Friday, April 23rd, although desktop effects were still broken.
Due my work schedule Tuesday and Wednesday, I wasn't able to check to see what might have fixed the problem, but after seeing your post I looked back so I could give you a timeline.
I have just updated tonight, and checked my desktop effects multiple times, going back and forth between 2D and Compiz and at the moment have no problems or errors popping up.
If there is some other way I can help, please don't hesitate to ask.
GoinEasy9, Thanks for the information. It looks like the latest mesa release combined with the latest xorg-x11-server release fixed quite a few issues. Hopefully yours was one of them and you will not see this crash again.
Closing the BZ. Please reopen it if the error recurs.
