X -version

If I have Dota running as bordeless window and click/alt+tab to the background of my desktop, I can move windows around fine, select windows and enter text in windows. But when I try to open a new program or resize a window in the background, all of X segfaults

Log shows most of the backtrace is in obfuscated calls in the closed source
/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so - there's not much anyone but
nvidia can do with that.
Comment 3 YumekuiNeru 2013-11-26 10:49:21 UTC
on to nvidia then
Comment 4 YumekuiNeru 2013-12-22 16:13:11 UTC
Temporary workaround: Using twm to launch steam games as twm seems to not conflict with the games opengl or whatever. At least I fail to reproduce any crashes with twm.

(Nvidia has not really commented on the report I submitted yet).
