The SDL-based game "teeworlds" crashes on a laptop with Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350M [1002:4337] when KMS is used, but it runs fine when I use "nomodeset".
When I don't have "firmware-linux-nonfree" installed the game also doesn't crash but it's 20 times slower, about 1 fps.
I tested on many recent Debian and Ubuntu versions - the output below is from Debian testing (Wheezy). I had to comment out "options radeon modeset=1" in /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf for "nomodeset" to take effect.
I can attach more output upon request, or test with different software versions.
