6.0_RC1 Xorg failure w/ Radeon X3000 card

Hash: SHA1


I've upgraded my ${DAYJOB} workstation from 6.0_BETA2 to 6.0_RC1 this
morning at work, and I had to fallback to 6.0_BETA2 as Xorg fails badly.
I'll try to be as precise as I can but I have no error log to show as
Xorg (from Xorg.0.log) seems happy and no errors of any kind are raised.

The workstation has the following graphic card:

RADEON(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics" (ChipID = 0x9616)

It has DRI/DRM and AIGLX enabled:

info: [drm] Setting GART location based on new memory map
info: [drm] Loading RS780 Microcode
info: [drm] Resetting GPU
info: [drm] writeback test succeeded in 1 usecs
radeondrm0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 18

[    34.291] (II) AIGLX: enabled GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer
[    34.291] (II) AIGLX: enabled GLX_SGI_make_current_read
[ 34.291] (II) AIGLX: enabled GLX_texture_from_pixmap with driver support [ 34.301] (II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/X11R7/lib/modules/dri/
[    34.301] (II) GLX: Initialized DRI GL provider for screen 0

This card showed some artifacts before but it never was that bad, with
RC1, xfce hangs forever; more interesting, twm draws a black backgroud
and everytime you pop the menu it will stay drawn in the background.
When using RC1's, switching to the non-graphical console using
Ctrl-Alt-F1 is very slow and sometimes don't even work.
xdm doesn't draw the whole "NetBSD" login box, the input area works but
is not displayed.

I tried many xorg.conf options / combinations, nothing helps.

Note that I use this station for work, so I won't be able to make a lot of
tests with it.

Hints? This is worth a PR I guess?
