Sorry, the correct link for radeon_dri.c is actually:

> The latest X.org (from CVS date:2004-07-13) seems to crash while opening
> or resizing some gtk windows, I didn't investigate it much, but server
> crashes (Fatal server error: Caught signal 11.  Server aborting) were
> caused by opening xfce4-mixer, evolution-1.5, gtk file save dialog,
> rhythmbox (all of those, including gtk are also latest CVS versions,
> but I don't think gtk could cause this).
> Anyway, I tried Xorg from 2004-07-09 and it worked fine, then I applied
