    Can you check whether glxinfo says that Mesa is using direct or indirect software rendering ? I'm wondering if there is some kind of (lack-of-) synchronization issue between SW 3D rendering and HW 2D/video acceleration.

      Brigdman: Did you mean me? If yes, here is the complete output, I'm running radeonhd git + drm git (R600 branch) from today on my RS780.

      In short:
      direct rendering: Yes

      I did not test with radeon yet, but I think the problem does not occur there.

      Thanks for your help.

        Yep, I meant you. Thanks !

        EDIT - actually I originally meant highlandsun, but since you reported the same problem...

        It would be interesting to try with LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT set, which would (hopefully) force any 3D calls to go through the server and be at least semi-serialized against the 2D/video HW accel operations.

          Here is glxinfo with indirect rendering (if it's interesting):

          Gonna try openoffice with indirect rendering out...

          Edit: No success, still the same crash. (I started via "LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 openoffice" and then opened the file. Is that correct?) Here is the xorg.log:

            I think that's right. Thanks for trying...

              No problem.

              *I* thank *you* for the docs and so free drivers! (and of course the devs, too )

                Thanks to all for pursuing this. I've been a bit preoccupied...

                In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day I'd be happy to send y'all a pint of Guinness for your trouble.
