This is the same thing as what I emailed the list about.. the radeon 
driver seems to not work with what ever changes were made to the DRI. 
The net's full of people saying the same thing... Hense why a back port 
of the changes would be appreciated... or at least a hint as to what we 
could change in the code ourselves based on the changes... Seb >Message:
