(it looks like for some reason it filed the bug prematurely as i attached the
xorg log file)

I have a 2 screen setup with xinerama. The xorg.conf file is the following.

Section "DRI"
       Group "video"
       Mode 0666

Section "Files"
        ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
        FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/misc"
        FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi:unscaled"
        FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/75dpi:unscaled"
        FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
        FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/Type1"

Section "Module"
        Load  "dbe"
        Load  "glx"
        Load  "record"
        Load  "dri2"
        Load  "dri"
        Load  "extmod"
        Load  "drm"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "radeon"
        VendorName  "ATI Technologies Inc"
        BoardName   "RV770 [Radeon HD 4850]"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
        Option      "DRI" "on"
        Option      "ColorTiling" "on"
        Option      "AccelMethod" "EXA"       

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier "DVI-0"

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier "DVI-1"
        Option "LeftOf" "DVI-0"

I am using the standard Arch linux packages.

After testing i get a similar bug both under KDE 4.6.1 and under a TWM session
in which just displaying the menu is enough to trigger the bug. Neither Qt, GTK
nor Java apps seem to trigger the bug.

Thank you very much!
