Thanks Alberto.

I found the bug you mention and the change that disabled it now (see below).
The corruption was bug might have been more prominent in KDE
but I remember seeing it every now and then on GNOME as well.

Corruption bug is here btw:

Some users in that bug suggests that another way to fix
the bug was to go with UXA. Therefore, I suspect it might
be possible to fix both the fglrx perf issues _and_ not
cause any intel breakage if we enable UXA by default in karmic.

  [ Timo Aaltonen ]
  * debian/rules: Enable dbus-support.
  * Merge current server-1.6-branch.
  * Disable patch 107 for now, to see what kind of a performance hit
    it'll be. The problem it causes is random garbage on windows
    while apps are being loaded.
    (LP: #254468)
  * Remove patches 150, 151, 152, 154, applied upstream.

  [ Bryce Harrington ]
  * 156_exevents_copykeyclass_nullptrcheck.patch: Add several NULL pointer
    checks in CopyKeyClass to prevent SEGFAULT seen when pressing button
    on an ATI USB remote control.
    (LP: #311254)
