I do not use KDE, so it is not clear to me what is wrong on the screenshot.
Please also attach the screenshot how it should look like, so that we can

Here's some advice on how to bisect efficiently.

Your driver is usually located in something like: /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so

Delete that file and make a new symlink r300_dri.so in place of the original
file and point it to .../mesa/lib/gallium/radeong_dri.so, where mesa is your
git-cloned mesa repository.

Here I have:

$ ls -l /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 47 2010-05-23 21:22 /usr/lib/dri/r300_dri.so ->

Now when you just compile the driver ("make"), it will be automatically used by
all applications you run, and those running ones should be just restarted.
Concerning KDE, you probably want to restart kdm after typing "make" in the
mesa directory. It's really that simple. Now there is nothing stopping you from
bisecting. ;)
