So I notice actually! (grep'ed the Makefiles in the GL/ folder!)

Well my Mesa now uses fno-strict-aliasing too as a build flag but it
does not appear to work. Same symptoms as before. Any more ideas?

No specific options are passed to compiz/beryl which has always worked
in the past but even passing specifically --indirect-rendering doesn't
help (I see you mentioned this in the bug report).
