ATI rv250 hangs with opengl apps

Since xorg > 6.8.0, including CVS as of a few days ago, opengl apps 
have been getting my x session stuck - X cursor is still alive, and I 
can ssh in from outside, but X session is stuck and either 
<some-gl-app> or Xorg is spinning at 99%.  Kill -9 <gl-app> brings the 
system to its knees, I get a trickle of characters over ssh connection 
before I give up and hit reset.

glxgears reliably triggers the problem after 3 or 4 seconds, so
it is easy to reproduce.

I saw some similar bug reports,

A few lines from Xorg.0.log,

(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV250 If [Radeon 9000] 
rev 1, Mem @ 0xe8000000/26, 0xf1000000/16, I/O @ 0xa000/8

Complete logs at,  (config.gz, xorg.conf)

If it will help, I'm willing to do the "binary search of CVS 
snapshots" to (with luck) narrow down where the bug is (assuming its 
only one bug), but if anyone can point to some reasonable before-
and-after snapshot points to test around, that would be nice.
