Xorg log showing segfault

This is with xorg-server-1.8.1 and with xf86-video-ati-6.13.0.

The video driver was re-compiled after the install of 1.8.1.

The comparable log of the combination of 1.8.0 and this same video driver is
identical up to the point of the blank line just before the backtrace message.

Other people on the noted forum thread are also reporting the same foss ati
driver/server combination segfault. However, the fault doesn't happen at the
same instance in time for everyone.

In my case, it is after kde-4.4.3 starts and various programs included in my
saved desktop are launching. When I start xfce4, the segfault doesn't occur.

The implication is that the segfault occurs when some specific video function
or combination of functions is requested.

People with other video cards are reporting they don't have a problem.

This includes people running the proprietary ati drivers.

You may still want to peruse the noted forum thread.

Thank you looking at this. It's really appreciated. If you need further
information, please let me know.
