syslog during crash

Firefox 24, with hardware acceleration on, X crashes and the whole desktop enters a logout loop. Restarting is the only way out :(. 

I am running Ubunut 13.04 (linux mint 15) with Linux Kernel 3.11.4 with radeon.dpm=1 and oibaf ppa (mesa-9.3-git) and Xorg 1.13.4

Attached are my syslog and Xorg.0.log during the crash. 

Please let me know if I need to attach any further logs.

Here are some  error messages that I found in these logs :

syslog : 
[ 1807.720765] [drm:radeon_crtc_page_flip] *ERROR* failed to pin new rbo buffer before flip
[ 1810.600061] radeon 0000:01:00.0: ffff88008c51ac00 pin failed

from Xorg.0.log :

[  1839.182] (WW) RADEON(0): flip queue failed: Invalid argument
[  1839.182] (WW) RADEON(0): Page flip failed: Invalid argument

Yeah I've just experienced the same... it's a shock that firefox seems to be responsible for the bug. This is a really critical bug.

I've got quite the same warnings:

radeon 0000:0b:00.0: ib ring test failed (-35).
[drm:radeon_ib_ring_tests] *ERROR* radeon: failed testing IB on GFX ring (-35).
[drm:r600_ib_test] *ERROR* radeon: fence wait failed (-35).
radeon 0000:0b:00.0: GPU lockup (waiting for 0x0000000000447fb3 last fence id 0x0000000000447fac)
radeon 0000:0b:00.0: GPU lockup CP stall for more than 10000msec


[drm:radeon_crtc_page_flip] *ERROR* failed to pin new rbo buffer before flip
radeon 0000:0b:00.0: ffff880158860c00 pin failed

Lots of errors like that!

Is this still happening with current versions of Mesa and the kernel?
