xorg log

When I switch from one workspace to another the screen changes (the workspace
changes instantly) but AwesomeWM's task bar does not change immediately, there
are a few seconds of lag before it will register that the workspace has

To reproduce, in Awesome press meta (windows key usually) + 2 to change from
the first to second workspace. Watch the numbers on the top left hand side and
you should see a noticeable delay for the numbers to change and to show you
which workspace you are on. 

I have attached my xorg log in case it reveals anything, I can't see anything
in particular there. 

I am using funtoo with the x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-9999 ebuild from the x11
overlay. This behaviour does not exist with the 7.5.0 driver. 

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d % cat radeon.conf

   Identifier  "radeon"
   Driver      "radeon"
   Option      "TearFree" "true"
