Check against https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71191 as
Clemens has just opened that with very similar symptoms. In general I do
find bugzilla easier to review (simply because all the log files and
other information is all in the same) and since all the other bugs are
there, that is where most of my attention is spent.
