Xorg log when the corruption occurs, not much here

After logging into Gnome 3.6 display turns up corrupted (background garbled, letters missing in labels). Also several errors come up in the logs. Especially the ones that come up after logging out and logging back in look interesting.

Restarting the gnome-shell with Alt-F2,r clears up the corruption.

There's also one line that didn't end up in the attached logs here for some reason (Failed to allocate GEM object).

One more image of the corruption

I also had a dejavu. I think I had a similar issue also with an X1400, a different box and previous versions of Gnome. Same graphical symptoms, but more random (these are reproducable) and no errors in logs that time. The issue was never resolved.
Comment 7 Michel Dänzer 2012-11-01 08:36:56 UTC
Which version of Mesa are you using?

Is this a regression, i.e. did it only start after you upgraded some software packages?
Comment 8 druidic 2012-11-01 17:13:57 UTC
mesa 9.0
libgl 9.0

I haven't been using Gnome for a while, but decided to try it out now that 3.6 came out. If the issue had occurred just after a straightforward upgrade, I could've started bisecting immediately.

Now the case is that I have know idea where to look, unfortunately.
Comment 9 druidic 2012-11-01 17:15:25 UTC
Oh yeah. And I tried downgrading to mesa 8.0.4. No change.
Comment 10 Paul Samways 2012-11-02 07:39:23 UTC
I get the same corruption after updating the following packages, as well as the same kernel messages from the Radeon driver.

Comment 12 Alex Deucher 2012-11-08 13:32:59 UTC
Can you try booting with radeon.gartsize=1024?  Ideally with a 3.7 kernel.
Comment 13 druidic 2012-11-08 16:46:19 UTC
I tried the mainline kernel 3.7rc4 with radeon.gartsize=1024

No corruption, but the kernel error messages are still there.
Comment 14 druidic 2012-11-08 18:32:50 UTC
Created attachment 69767 [details]
Kernel error messages with 3.7rc4 and radeon.gartsize=1024

Here are the messages I get (without corruption).
Comment 15 mavericck 2012-11-12 10:12:42 UTC
I'm not experiencing corruptions nor errors in dmesg after adding radeon.gartsize=1024
Comment 16 druidic 2012-11-12 16:15:12 UTC
Interesting. I still do (get errors I mean - no corruption).

Upgraded to 3.7rc5 and xf86-video-ati-7.0.0, but no change.
Comment 17 mavericck 2012-11-14 08:32:49 UTC
I have to correct my previous comment: the error messages reappeared in dmesg (however without all the [TTM] lines, only the "Failed to parse relocation -12" one) and the corruption too.
The beahavior is still quite random, the error appears about once every 5 boots, the corruption once every 10 boots (or logout/login cycles)
