Description of problem:
Whenever I start Quake 3 Arena I observe that textures are not drawn properly.
Instead of seeing a solid textured surface I get random black areas which
depending on the movement, they get intermittently drawn or not. However if I
select under the configuration screen (setup - system -lightning) to change the
lightning technique from lightmap to vertex, I get the game running without
these black areas appearing, but with a lower quality. I tried rebuilding the
XFree86 server from factory source RPMS, but I still get the same problem.
The problem appeared only under RedHat 9, however under RedHat Linux 8 and
XFree86 4.2 the driver works perfectly rendering the textures as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and run Quake 3 Arena Point Release 1.31 or 1.32.
Actual Results: The Radeon driver draws intermittent textured and black areas.
Expected Results: Proper texture rendering and lightning.
Additionally, the computer is a Toshiba Satellite 1905-s301, 2.0 GHz Pentium 4,
256 MB RAM. I am attaching my XFree86 configuration, as well as the last log
output to /var/log/XFree86.0.log

Please report this problem directly to the Mesa3D project upstream or
the dri-devel mailing list. You can also file it in XFree86 bugzilla if
you wish, and I will track the upstream progress on this problem and
consider including any fixes they make.
If you'd like me to track the upstream bug report, include the URL here
after filing the bug: http://bugs.xfree86.org
I'm processing UPSTREAM flagged bug reports for upstream fixes currently, and
noticed that this bug was flagged upstream but has no upstream bug URL, and I
was unable to find an upstream bug report of this issue in XFree86 bugzilla
Closing bug report as WONTFIX as I'm unable to track upstream until a bug
report has been filed upstream, and the URL provided for tracking. If this
issue is still relevant in the latest XFree86 packages in rawhide, after
reporting upstream at http://bugs.xfree86.org, feel free to add the bug
report URL to this report and reopen if you'd like the issue to be tracked
and any fixes from upstream investigated for inclusion in future Red Hat
