What solved theproblem was disabling the radeonfb in the kernel. Currently enablingradeonfb and using at the same time the radeon Xorg driver with DRIdisabled is not possible.
Sorry, your message isn't very clear...
Yes, there have been fixes in CVS since 3 or 4 days ago though I don't
know if they affect yur problem. I don't remember you talking about
interaction with radeonfb & dri in that way, and I don't remember seing
your "other" message, can you CC me or better file a bugzilla entry with
all the relevant informations and add me on CC to it.
