Description of problem:
When i'm logged as a user, i'm unable to play quake3. The screen just turns
black and nothing happened. When i run glxgears, the framerate seems good
(550FPS and more..) but the graphical opengl window seems to runs very slowly. I
dont have this problem when i'm logged as root.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log as user.
3. Look at the window.
Actual Results: the movement of the wheels are not constant and seems to runs
Expected Results: The wheels should move very fast.
glxinfo says Direct Rendering is Yes.
The dri device seems good :

Problem still exists with XFree86-184.108.40.2061-20030209.1 and kernel 2.4.20-2.44.
However as glxgears seems to run normally _sometimes_ i'm still unable to play
q3, nor chromium.
Phoebe3 has that bug. I've done a fresh install.
I've pressed the "commit" button too fast. Even if glxgears still have behaviour
(imo), chromium and quake3 runs normally.
