When dragging icons around in KDE (tested with 3.4 and CVS builds), the server
locks. The cursor can still move around but the rest of X is frozen. The only
way to fix it after this is to ssh in and kill X.
Running gdb and grabbing a backtrace when the system locks up produces the

Disabling acceleration fully and DRI doesn't seem to stop the lockups. I've
tried this with both the fbdev and radeon drivers, both producing the same

what happens if you disable the Damage extension?
Option "DAMAGE" "disable"
Still locks up when dragging stuff around.
hm, so that looks like an infinite loop in miPolyBuildPoly then.
when you say dragging around icons, that means konqueror icons, right? whatever
process it is, it would help to see what the last request it sent to the server was.
george, as i'm unable to reproduce this here, you will need to supply more
information if you want this fixed in 7.0.
irreproducible and no further info from reporter -> move out to 7.1.
george, this is probably just a loop caused by precision problems somewhere
along the line. please try building a debuggable X server and find out what
line(s) this is stalling on.

Moving out to 7.2. Reporter, ping ping ping, either verify this is still an
issue or risk a WORKSFORME.
Erk, just noticed this thread again in my email; the bug was resolved a while
ago and I neglected to close this bug. Apologies.
Closing as submitter doesn't experience this issue any more.
