I know that vsync worked on Radeon Zaphod mode when bug #29726 was fixed but it
has broken at some point since. I am now observing tearing in glxgears even
when it reports that vsync is enabled. Unfortunately I have no idea exactly
when it broke. The good news is I have a very strong clue as to what the
problem is. If you remove this line...


...then it works. Why? I wish I knew. It was just a very lucky stab in the
dark. This line was around a good deal before bug #29726 was fixed so
presumably its interaction with something else must have changed in the
meantime. SwapbuffersWait is definitely enabled.
