Output of the dmesg command

Fedora 11 "Desktop Effects" fails and logs me out.  Chatted with MostAwesomeDude and glisse on irc.freenode.net:#radeon.  Attachments are:  output of dmesg; contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log; output of lspci.  Note: per suggestion of MostAwesomeDude I'm using kernel parameter nomodeset.  Otherwise I was getting the error from compiz-check:  "Software rasterization in use".

According to your xorglog everythings works properly. Is this log taken while things work ? Please attach output of glxinfo.

glxinfo from always-fails attempt to start Desktop Effects

Hi Jerome, Here's the requested glxinfo.  I did the following steps:
1. Booted with nomodeset
2. Grabbed glxinfo
3. Clicked System -> Preferences -> Desktop Effects: Enable Desktop Effects
and observed a slight blink of the screen but no change, Desktop Effects window is still present
4. Grabbed glxinfo again
5. Clicked Enable Desktop Effects again and observed that I got logged off and automatically logged on again, but still no Desktop Effects present
6. Grabbed glxinfo again
The three glxinfo grabs were identical as verified by md5sum.  I have attached one of them.  I'd be happy to do more:  I could for instance repeat the above steps and then grab multiple files, say, output of glxinfo, together with Xorg.0.log and output of dmesg and etc etc, whatever you like.
This problem is new to Fedora 11.  This computer had been running with Desktop Effects just fine for months with Fedora 10.
