    Anyone know what the chances are that this makes its way into Ubuntu Jaunty?

      I think the chance is very low, because Jaunty gets released in less then a month. Not enough time for testing etc. Also Jaunty is already frozen, so no new packages without exception.
      I hope for 9.10

        Don't hope for 9.10. Instead, hope for Mesa 7.5/7.6

          I thought it had to see with changing the front buffer while updating the screen. I didn't activate V-Sync (I should start looking for it).

          Whatever, it has always been this way with the radeon driver on my laptop. Usually, you can barely see it but it is quite visible with glxgears. I guess it is because it is not really accelerated (look at the poor FPS rate, and a core of my CPU is fully used).
          I got same effect when running glxgears using mesa software renderer over ssh.

            Yep, that's understandable.

            The fact is that it IS hardware accelerated, my CPU usage is really really low even when playing videos.
            That's why I asked the question, it did this when I installed the XServer 1.6.

              I'm sorry, I can't try it out because I can't play with my XPress 200M (I can barely play on TeeWorlds in window mode in 640*480).
              I posted it on nabble:

              someone with R400 (X700) have dynamic lighting regression too in q3a.

              I think none distro will include plain mesa-7.4, it has so many regression...

                I thought 7.4 was the stable release of 7.3 and as such will be bugfixes only, no new features? If that's the case, it seems reasonable to assume it'll make it's way into Jaunty eventually.

                  Well, I did not think at that by now. You could be right

                    Either 7.4, or 7.3 with a lot of of fixes applied

                      Both these bugs in mesa core are now fixed by Roland Scheidegger (bug #20965, #20966)

                      Fixed in master (ebc1478e501d43e0de54e7b6c3edfbc81d7d20c6) and mesa_7_4_branch (7be149cfd131c0b3f7d4337bb83e6fba5f563bf9)
