Add initialization of framebuffer.base
I have seen the same problem under Fedora 19 beta. It appears when running as a 32-bit VirtualBox guest. I originally reported this as VirtualBox bug <https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/11821>. From there I was referred to Arch Linux bug <https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/33229>, which referred me here.
I have applied the fix suggested in comment #1. It works. The problem appeared every single time before, but vanishes completely with this fix in place.
See also <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=972095> for my report of this as a Fedora bug, in which I suggest that the fix from comment #1 be applied to Fedora's X server builds.
Hi what the state of the patch , seems very easy, we need this urgently in Fedora 19 ,
This already marked with a critical bug .
This patch is already approved ? and push to upstream ? and maybe also is good idea push to stable branch .

The patch was applied in "master" the 2013-03-18, but looks like nobody merged it in the stable branch "server-1.14-branch"
I bump the importance to the maximum...
No one pays attention to the "importance" fields of the bugs in bugzilla.
If you want to nominate something to be backported to the stable branch
you would need to contact the maintainer of that stable branch - currently
Matt Dew for the 1.14 stable branch.
Marking this bug as fixed, since the patch was integrated into the Xorg
tree for the 1.15 release:
requested for 1.14 stable branch, should be in 1.14.3 if it all goes well
