The former, but make sure it's actually visible in the SL process, either by
exporting it or just prepending it on the SL command line.

As I said before, the information in your original report is enough to get the
bisection started:

git bisect bad 2dc35a619c50139d07ad96fc4dfe456e5811c84e
git bisect good mesa-9.2.3

After that, git bisect will isolate the change introducing the problem after
the minimum number of tests required, which is about a dozen (roughly the
logarithm to the base of 2 of the number of commits between the commits above).

At this point, there's no way to make progress on this bug without someone who
can reproduce the problem and investigate or at least bisect it. It's up to you
if you want to look for someone else who fits the bill, or just bisect

That's unlikely, especially since Mesa 9.2.3 still works fine?

FYI, it's possible to test newer versions of all components without affecting
the system installed ones. But so far everything points to this being a Mesa
