I'm using a Radeon 7000 video card. I've always had little rendering problems
with Xorg - in KDE, OpenOffice, wine, etc:
1) Dragging icons on KDE's desktop often leaves traces. (There's a KDE bug:
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84737. It mentions some PE_FocusRect
2) When running Wine in an emulated desktop mode, dragging windows leaves
3) In OpenOffice, the letter "r" is drawn incorrectly for certain font sizes.
(Also, the Cyrillic letter "г" has the same problem - which is pretty
interesting, since they have almost the same shape.)
I will attach screenshots.
I tried using EXA. All of the above problems were fixed... But new ones
appeared. So I can't decide what to use.

First of all, please don't mix several issues into a single report. Also, please
attach full config and log files for all cases.

See bug 1424.
Nice, the "XaaNoDashedBresenhamLine" and "XaaNoDashedTwoPointLine" options
fixed dragging icons and (almost) fixed Wine. (That is, Wine still has some
problems - but they also appear with EXA and without acceleration at all.)

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
Is this still an issue with the latest driver from ati git?
Yep... Same issues.
(I tried wine and OpenOffice - KDE is not using PE_FocusRect anymore.)
dropping as a release blocker since exa has been the default for quite some time now.
Closing as WONTFIX; XAA is too far gone these days. If EXA does not work, file a new bug or attach yourself to an existing bug matching your issues.
