Hi all
up to some days ago I was an happy Xorg (6.8.2) user 
with Mandriva installed on my laptop.

On September 1 I made an alignment to the latest cooker release,i.e. I
Installed XOrg X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release,
and my laptop began about unusable.

Reinstalling Xorg 6.8.2 all the problems went away,
so I'm writing this mail to inform you on what is happening
on my laptop.

Problem 1), already mailed

"KDE (3.4.1) failed to draw button widgets (push buttons, some popups, some 
window decorations, etc) when running under this server. The xorg logs seemed 
ok, no reported "unusual" errors/problems. I am not running transparency in 

note: I'm running KDE 3.4.2

No answers to that mail

Problem 2), already mailed

"I have no mouse cursor, just a square "blob" 
of graphic to tell me where my mouse cursor is"

I made a tentative with the setting the SwCursor On,
the mouse icon was visible but each mouse movement 
resulted also in a deleting part of the background...

Problem 3), maybe the wrongest one:
the menu items (and some other writed lines) were painted on the screen and
deleted after a few milliseconds; 
this happens both on KDE and icewm.

By enabling this KDE setting I can have a readable menu:
application "kcontrol",
"look and feel"-> "fonts", check "Use antialias for font", 
click on button "configure", then enable "Use sub-pixel hinting".

Attached you can find Xorg.logs related to both the xorg version 
I have used in these days.

Please let me know if I can help in some way or if I should file
some bugs in http://bugs.freedesktop.org/

Best regards and thanks for the wonderful job you are doing!! :)
