Xorg.0.log

Its related with https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=949058:

Occaionally, any new opened window (explorers, libreoffice, firefox, terminal, etc) will go black and making it unusuable unless I restart X.

After installing Fedora 22 (this issue occurred before, on Debian 8 "Jessie"), I've got corrupted graphics (images wrong displayed - as showed here: http://youtu.be/RdPf8SLv_k0) - tried the fix in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=949058#c16, but it not solved the issue (it seemed to have no effect at all - I think "AccelMethod" it's already set to "sna"...).

Based on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=949058#c16 and some googling, I've tried it:

################# begin file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ #################
Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
EndSection
################# end file #################

... it corrected the graphics (images are displayed correctly!), but the black boxes occurred again after some use (like on Debian)...

additional info:
      -- chipset: Q35
      -- system architecture: x86_64
      -- xf86-video-intel/xserver/ version: in the attached Xorg.0.log
      -- kernel version: 4.0.1-300.fc22.x86_64
      -- Linux distribution: Fedora 22
      -- Machine or mobo model: Dell Optiplex 755
      -- Display connector: DVI (with DVI-VGA adapter to connect monitor)

Bug in libdrm_intel for UXA, in theory fixed in latest libdrm_intel.

Trivial recent bug in sna (introduced by new features in kernel 4.0 + 2.99.917)

Which one? There is no information here to suggest that you have the fix.
Comment 9 Felipe Braga 2015-08-11 18:56:48 UTC
This one (described here): with some updates of Fedora 22 distro, the bug seems to become less likely to happening, but some other do the opposite :P

here:
$ uname -a

Comment 10 Chris Wilson 2015-08-11 19:02:38 UTC
Just start with Xorg.0.log.

Sorry: I'm not a video driver developer
Comment 12 Chris Wilson 2015-08-11 19:15:57 UTC
There are a few bugs described here. So what symptoms do you still see?
Comment 13 Felipe Braga 2015-08-11 19:20:13 UTC
the one described in the "description" of this bug...
Comment 14 Felipe Braga 2015-08-12 13:44:34 UTC
I've been able to record it today: https://youtu.be/-qFSjPD6D4g

* trying to record, I've noted something: opening gnome-terminal (it's window seems transparent...) stops the recording
Comment 15 Felipe Braga 2015-08-12 14:01:54 UTC
Whit SNA (or no setup at all): http://youtu.be/Mv_Z3UW7El0

* it occurs not only on Firefox (I've only used it to show the bug)

it's very annoying (and it's happen on a DELL Optiplex 755 machine [https://duckduckgo.com/?q=dell+usff+755&t=ffab&iax=1&ia=images], with a tiny form-factor ["USFF = Ultra Small Form Factor"]]: it has no space for an extra video card to avoid the problem...)
