It looks like that the ati/radeon driver is hit by the old
'buggy_repeat' bug, even with a new X server. I've got Xorg 18.104.22.168,
radeon driver 6.7.197 and a more recent one built from git yesterday;
both show the bug. (Tested with https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41358.)
Any thoughts on what we can do about this? Is there a way to grab the
name/version of the currently in-use display driver for a given
display with some Xorg extension? Ideally this would get fixed in the
radeon driver, but this bug is present in the most recent shipping
linux distros; unless they were all willing to backport and release an
update, we may still need a workaround.
