Not for me, and this is my bug.

I notice that the screen corruption continues after launching OpenGL apps
without using the LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 environment variable. Normally I used
this fallback hack to make sure that Nexuiz could launch.

While the latest git checkouts for mesa/libdrm/video-ati make it possible to
play the game without that environment variable, the same kind of mouse pointer
corruption appears in a line near the top of my screen, about 3/4 of the whole
screen. Buncha small dots, though this time not attached to the pointer. They
remain a bit below my taskbar until I restart my X session or drag a Firefox
window across it to "erase" 'em.

I have moved to kernel 2.6.32_rc4-r1; this definitely made it possible to play
Nexuiz at all, but the screen corruption is still intermittent. 
I'm still tryin' to diagnose what's going on.
