If I've followed the conversation, it seems this is now working with the 
i810 driver, correct?  It seems that sometime, in the last few weeks, it 
stopped working with the r300 driver.  After updating Mesa, drm, and my 
xorg build this morning, beryl is unusable again.  Instead of getting 
the white screen, though, now I get:


It still appears to work fine with the radeon driver, however.

I'll go ahead and open up a new bug, but I'm curious if anyone else can 
reproduce this first.
