See if disabling the DRI helps. If it's an AGP card, try forcing it
into PCI mode (Option "BusType" "PCI"). Finally look for a similar bug
on freedesktop bugzilla (https://bugs.freedesktop.org) and if you find
a similar one or need to create a new one, add your information and
attach your xorg log and config.
