I would point out that I am on Intel and at least one other reporter is on Nouveau, so that suggests that those who are proposing a Nouveau-specific known bug is the cause are probably not correct.

I should point out that OpenGL works correctly most of the time.

This happens running Compiz and glxgears and fullscreen Flash video.  If I ssh in at runlevel 3 and run X from one terminal and glxgears twice from another, it works once and then will go into the loop.  Maybe this will help someone who understands server internals better than I do at this point to be able to zero in on what it is.  Once again, Intel 2.12.0, server 1.8.2, Mesa 7.8.2, kernel 2.6.35.
