           Summary: X crashes when simultaneous rendering is triggered
           Product: xorg
           Version: 7.2
          Platform: x86 (IA32)

            Status: NEW

         Component: Driver/Radeon

This is also reported at Launchpad: 

I've reproduced this user's crash on an M24 radeon mobility x600.  I wasn't
able to reproduce it on a Mobility M7, nor on an RV280.

"I have a reproducible X crash when using a simple python program. This code
uses the VTK library (package python-vtk). I will attach the code in a reply

Procedure :
the program creates 3 rendering windows. In the beginning of the program, all
the three windows are stacked on top of each other.
three steps are necessary :
- Move one of the windows besides the two others
- Pick one of the remaining stacked windows and move it so that it covers (at
least partially) the other two windows.
- Move again this same window to uncover parts of the other two windows. This
will trigger rendering of these windows, and X crashes...

the interesting part of DMESG is :
