Description kirillkh 2010-09-11 19:01:22 UTC
I'm using Kubuntu 10.04.1 with 2.6.35-19-generic kernel and radeon driver labeled "1:6.13.99+git20100907.b90cb61c-0ubuntu0sarvatt~lucid" from the edgers repository. The video card is HD3870.

When running with KMS, I'm seeing flickering in Baldur's Gate Tutu (which is based on Baldur's Gate II engine, so the bug is probably also present there), where small random rectangles flash brightly for a fraction of second and then dim again. The issue is apparent even when I don't do anything, but when I move the mouse cursor around, it becomes worse, and the mouse cursor disappears from time to time when moved.

Tested wine-1.3.2 and wine-1.1.44, the issue occurs in both. I do not use compositing. The game is configured to use 3D acceleration (it won't run otherwise).

The issue doesn't occur with KMS disabled.
