--- Comment #11 from Damian Nowak <nowaker at geozone.pl> ---
My 7870 burned a month ago. Now I have a new one so I can continue

In the meantime there was a kernel update - I now have 3.10.5-1-ARCH instead of
3.9.6-1-ARCH. There were some updates along the way as well, marked as
[updated]. I currently have:

mesa 9.1.6-1 [updated]
libdrm 2.4.46-2 [updated]
ati-dri 9.1.6-1 [updated]
llvm-amdgpu-lib-snapshot 20130403-3 [the same]
xf86-video-ati-glamor-git 1:20120730-1 [the same]

Flash video doesn't overlap the windows any more.

Steam STILL overlaps other windows.

This needs a day of work with the IDE, it can't be reproduced ad hoc. Since
Steam is still affected, I'd guess this does not work as well.

I will follow you suggestion and will try updating the kernel to 3.11-rc4 and
mesa to git.
