I like your style putting your code where your mouth is :)
Unfortunately it cost me quite a bit of trouble to reproduce the problem,
where you able to reproduce the viewport being of problem (without your patch)
on the systems you tested on?
On my system (ati rv570 card) it turns out to actually be a kernel mode setting
bug, which has been fixed since. I needed to revert to an older kernel, before
I could reproduce, and once I could reproduce, your patch did not help I'm afraid.
So I may have been crying wolf over nothing, sorry. Although iirc I think I've seen
this on other systems too, but I cannot reproduce there now either.
