Okay, I found the place in source that triggers this. It happens in the
function r600_ib_test. The interesting thing is that not the ib-command
itself is responsible but the fence that is emitted afterwards (proved
by removing the fence command, where the problem went away).
I don't know enough about the command semantics to make a guess what
goes wrong there. But maybe you GPU folks have an idea?
