dmesg from whiteouted session

Description of problem:
With compiz set to unredirect full-screen windows, playing a Flash video (e.g. on YouTube) leads to the screen going completely white. On the first click of the full-screen button, it briefly flashes up full-screen and then return to normal. Trying again leads to the white-out. However the cursor changes to resize, spinner, etc. as if the underlying windows were still visible.

Killing compiz or replacing it with metacity doesn't help. The X session has to be restarted.

Doesn't happen on ATI graphics.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
compiz-0.8.6-1.fc13.x86_64
kernel-2.6.33.6-142.rc1.fc13.x86_64
libdrm-2.4.20-1.fc13.x86_64

No xorg.conf. Found this in /var/log/messages:

While Flash may have crashed, it shouldn't have been able to wreck the session like this.

Not had this problem with the 2.12 series drivers.
