** Description changed:

  I think the version of kwin included in 13.04 contains a known bug as described here:
  My understanding of the problem is as follows:
  * The Mesa radeon r600 driver recently added support for MSAA GLX visuals
  * Kwin isn't aware of MSAA properties and happens to (incorrectly) pick MSAA visuals for everything
  * These visuals occupy a large amount of memory when running at high monitor resolutions
  *  Mesa is "only" capable of mapping 256MB of visuals into CPU address space at once
  * Kwin's oversize visuals exceeds this limit, resulting in constant crashes
  The two radeon systems I have both crash immediately after logging in,
  when running with at a resolution of 2560x1440 and desktop effects
  enabled. After restarting kwin, a crash can be induced by performing
  actions that triggers desktop effects/animations. The resulting
- callstack is as given in the linked KDE bug.
+ callstack is attached.
