Using xorg-edgers PPA on ubuntu 12.10 but with newer vanilla kernel, I consistently get the following when attempting to start the DE Cinnamon as well as Gnome 3 upon which it is based:
cinnamon: segfault at 1 ip 00007f0bf3d24f95 sp 00007fffac52e440 error 4 in nouveau_dri.so[7f0bf3cb6000+143000]
According to dpkg, the version is git20130227.
Card is a NVIDIA Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GT] (rev a2)
Please advise as to how I can provide more info and possibly test patches.
Same on Gentoo and mesa-9999 (~ 2-3 weeks)

I've been rather conservative in specifying the importance, but since it precludes, and apparently Ungifted, from using any form of 3D-accelerated desktop environment, I don't feel wrong in bumping it up a few notches...
I can also confirm this bug, same error. Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT on Arch Linux tested with mesa from git today (22/3) and 11/3.

I'm on kernel 3.9-rc5 (was 3.8) / gnome 3.8 (was 3.6) / mesa and nouveau (current git).
Seems works fine now.
I can also confirm i dont have this "bug" more.. Therefor i set it as Fixed
Just wanted to chime in with support for "RESOLVED FIXED" status.
Incidentally, as the reporter, I specified where I got my packages from. What seems to have effected the fixing for me, was a new (package) release of the libdrm-nouveau(2?) package.

I have not updated libdrm just "mesa"/"nouveau" from git. So for me it seems like it have been fixed in mesa.
