This might be purely cosmetic ...
I see several "composite sync not supported" messages in dmesg:
[ 2.536779] composite sync not supported
[ 3.176551] composite sync not supported
[ 4.102713] composite sync not supported
[ 33.989447] composite sync not supported
[ 34.134485] composite sync not supported
[ 34.516294] composite sync not supported
[ 36.324730] composite sync not supported
[ 36.449244] composite sync not supported
[ 36.503628] composite sync not supported
[ 36.570172] composite sync not supported
[ 36.640147] composite sync not supported
[ 116.720937] composite sync not supported
[ 116.949037] composite sync not supported
[ 117.105603] composite sync not supported
[ 117.182753] composite sync not supported
[ 117.247212] composite sync not supported
[ 117.312193] composite sync not supported
[ 123.126539] composite sync not supported
[ 132.954659] composite sync not supported
[ 883.591307] composite sync not supported
This chatty message appears not only during boot but also on the running system. It gives no hint which driver reports the issue or how serious it is. (It seems like it is related to i915 and safely can be ignored ... and thus isn't relevant to log.)
Please improve the message to be as precise and helpful as other kernel messages.
The frequent repetition of the message might indicate that there is a bigger problem somewhere.
Reassign to me, I've a proper fix in the works.
kernel-3.3.0-4.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository.
Please retest with this update.

I still see a number of "composite sync not supported" in dmesg with kernel-PAE-3.3.0-4.fc16.i686 (and kernel-PAE-3.3.0-1.fc17.i686).
They appear immediately Xorg.0.log log entries like:

This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
