It does indeed work, if I install just Mesa-from-git with the RC2 server 
built against 6.5.2.

I find that the RC2 and RC3 servers are not even close to being able to 
build against Mesa-from-git.  For example the directory 
src/mesa/array_cache no longer exists and src/mesa/swrast causes the 
first build problem after that.

Given that the problem is reported and understood, and not a flaw in, for now I think I will go back to 6.5.2 and RC2, at least until 
the screen-blanking gets fixed.  I need logging out and in to work.

One more comment, the deep intertwining of Mesa and leads to a 
need to be clear about what release of Mesa is expected at least when a 
katamari release comes out.  In my experience that has been somewhat of 
an undocumented area.  I encourage you to put that information in the 
release announcement.

Thanks for your help on this.
