Unfortunately, it's not really usable for me with the r200 DRI driver.
Is that due to the lack of pbuffers?

Any plans to change that?

I didn't see the connection between these two things, so I whipped up a
patch that handles Expose events. Now this might be a horrible way of
doing it, in which case I'd appreciate an appropriate clue bat being
applied to me. :) I certainly prefer this over not handling exposures at
The patch also fixes a segfault in fbPixmapToRegion() that gets
triggered for me sometimes when running GNOME in Xglx.
