Note that by "so long" I was meaning the one+ month period from when this was wrote until the next Mesa release, not the time since the commit (the past week or so). That is, I was simply stating the urgency of finding a compromise (even on master), and no intention of blaming anybody.

By rule I don't comment on components I'm not familiar with (and the reason I'm not familiar with GLSL compiler is lack of time, not interest), and furthermore I've been doing very little Mesa related development lately, but I admit I should pay more attention at least to the changes that have side-effects on modules I care about.

Thanks for fixing this Ian.

I confess I'm surprised this was fixable without replicating the r300 optimizations in glsl compiler, as my understanding was that r300 limits matched SM3 precisely, and WINE generated shaders that exceeded those limits slightly. Guess not.

Anyway, I'm happy to see this issue die.
