    An example is at:

    Note that the 'Tools' on the menu bar has been garbled, as has
    part of the webpage.

    Has anyone else seem anything similar?

Does radeonhd use XAA? If so, and your X server isn't up-to-date (this has recently been made the default), add the following to the Device section of xorg.conf: Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true".

        I've been using modular-x11 from pkgsrc (and have the latest
        as of yesterday). I'll test out with that Option - thanks!

        Out of curiosity, do people tend to run X from xsrc or
        pkgsrc nowdays?
