I found some more problems, if I open an image in GIMP and try to pan around
using the space bar and moving the mouse, the mouse tries to move and come
back in place or some pixels away and after about 5 seconds X crashes with
0: /usr/bin/X(xorg_backtrace+0x33) [0x8104fbb]
1: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x75) [0x80bbdf4]

Fatal server error:

There's another problem, with the new driver/kernel I get a very *ODD*
display problem, the left of my screen is okay while the more you look at
the right of the screen, all the odd lines are darker than even lines, like
if it was interlaced on one side of the screen, look at the pictures.
