           Summary: Googleearth locks up radeon R300 card
           Product: xorg
           Version: 7.3
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: david.hagood at gmail.com
         QAContact: xorg-team at lists.x.org

I can 100% repeatably lock up my system to the point a reboot is required by
running Googleearth Plus.

The card is identified by xorg as:
(--) Chipset ATI Radeon 9600XT AR (AGP) found

The lockup has Googleearth running at 100% CPU load, with ALL X programs
(including Googleearth) unable to update the display (e.g. the clock won't
update, the load average applet in the panel won't update, etc.). HOWEVER: the
mouse pointer will still move (hardware mouse cursor), and the system can be
SSH'ed into.

Killing Googleearth with a SIGTERM at this point does nothing. Attempting to
attach to Googleearth with gdb will cause gdb to become unresponsive (e.g. you
cannot ctrl-C to break into Googleearth to back-trace it, however you CAN
ctrl-Z to suspend gdb).

Killing Googleearth with a SIGKILL will terminate it, but then X goes to 100%
CPU load, and cannot be SIGTERM'ed, only SIGKILLed.

Nothing additional appears in /var/log/Xorg.0.log after starting Googleearth.
