            Bug ID: 89233

My Qt5 based application updates contents of a widget as the mouse moves over
it. Unfortunately the drawing operation causes inexplicably high load and
everything slows down to a crawl. During that time I observe Xorg fully loading
one CPU core, the application itself does not seem to consume much CPU. My
entire desktop is almost unusable until Xorg sorts itself out after a few

As of now I found two possible workarounds:
1) Use Qt4 toolkit instead of Qt5
2) Set "Option" "NoAccel" to "true" in Xorg.conf

I believe that this issue has to do with either GLAMOR or xf86-ati drivers
because the application behaves normally on a machine with nVidia card or in

I attached a small MWE which demonstrates the problem. Build the MWE with Qt5
toolkit, maximize the window and move mouse over the green area.
