I recently upgraded from version 2.15.0 of the intel driver to 2.17.0 but found that with the latter
a trail of 'droppings' was left in the otherwise blank areas of a konqueror window when an icon was
dragged around in the window, under kde-3.5.10. The 'droppings' can be cleaned up by refreshing the
window. Investigation showed that the fault is also present in 2.16.0. I cloned the git archive and
through bisection identified the change that introduced the problem as:
Author: Eric Anholt <eric at anholt.net>

uxa: Simplify BLT solid acceleration for spans filling by only clipping once.
Due to subsequent changes that patch cannot be reverted but the attached patch reverts the 2.17.0
driver to its old (2.15.0) behaviour and eliminates the 'droppings'.
Happy to test a better patch that anyone cooks up.
