I'm not sure if this is mesa or the intel driver but it seems like its intel based.
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please add drm.debug=0x04 to the kernel command line, restart computer, and attach
* your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available),
* X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log)
* output of the dmesg command, and
* system log (/var/log/messages)
to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link above.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

dmesg output for the session, the system booted with the kernel option drm.debug=0x04

Contents of /var/log/messages
This is the /var/log/messages file, from boot to shutdown. I purged the NetworkManager and named logs.

Xorg log file for the session.
I attached the requested files.
mutter didn't crash this time, but I changed kernel in the meantime: I had a PAE kernel, now I'm using a 'normal' one to see if it mitigates frequency of bug #573177

#Virtual 2560 1200
Viewport 0 0
Virtual 1700 2000
What's wrong with the default? Does it help when you remove this xorg.conf?
In the past, without the "Virtual 1700 2000", it was impossible to add a second display for a xinerama configuration.
If it isn't needed anymore, I can remove it. Check in 10 minutes.
My /etc/X11/xorg.conf is not needed anymore, the dual monitor configuration works without it.
But gnome-shell still doesn't work.
Thanks for reporting the issue (and sorry to update you late).
This issue has been reported in Fedora 12 (Master ticket BZ#557027) and in Fedora 13 (Master ticket BZ#576883).
This a Desktop Effect triggered issue (Compiz + dual with your HW will trigger the same crasher.
I am closing this ticket, so please feel free to make any comment regarding this issue in the Master ticket corresponding to the version of Fedora that you are running now, and report whether or not, you can still reproduce the same issue (with the same backtrace showing crash around the sample_2d_linear function). If you try it reproduce it, please ensure that you are running a fully upgraded system (specially the intel video drivers).
Not sure it works, but feel free to report anyway.
PS: @ At Peter, Both BZ#557027 for F12 and F13 are assigned to xorg-x11-drv-intel so far.
As well Peter, with your permission, I will close 607564, 607559 and 603648 from the mutter component queue as dup of the BZ#576883 (F13)
