Sounds like there's a reproducible problem with RENDER acceleration and at
least one additional problem that is less reproducible. The older driver
version probably didn't have RENDER acceleration yet.

More likely just several driver specific issues. In particular, I think the
radeonhd driver uses more or less the same acceleration code as the radeon
