When run 'dga', it hangs Xorg. Any other X Window application can not run.
Cousor will disapear. But Xorg process do not crash.

Reproduce steps:
1,start Xorg;
2,run xterm;
3,run dga
4,run X window application(such as glxinfo. glxgears, xterm), these app will
hang up.

dga is an Xorg application. It will exit after you compile Xorg.
You can get source from http://gitweb.freedesktop.org

Current result:
DGA extension will hang Xorg.

By the way, if run mplayer with dga: "mplayer -vo dga VTS_01_0.VOB", X will also
hang up. 

Expected result:

Basic root-causing log:
When dga run, it will hang on function

Sounds like a generic problem then. Have you tried with another video driver ?

A nvidia driver has been used to test, X can started ,but dga test also has 
error, though not the same as Intel's driver

after starting dga:it will display following information:
1 addr:0x2b4bfc3da000, width 2048, bank size 15204352, depth 24 planes

it can catch the mouse motion, but pressing any key on keyboard will kill dga 
with following information:  

[root@x-945g skull]#
Message from syslogd@x-945g at Fri Dec 15 16:08:20 2006 ...
x-945g kernel: Bad pagetable: 000f [9] SMP

after that, glxgears can run but not display on the screen.
