Interesting. Another Radeon 4650 (rv730) is not working here, giving Bus
Errors at the same address whenever certain applications are launched.
Failing examples: Firefox, gedit, qt4-designer
Successful: xfce4-terminal, ioquake3, compiz

I just completed recompiling all ports dependent on libGL with no luck.
I had "WITHOUT_NOUVEAU" in make.conf at the same time as
"WITH_NEW_XORG", is that the problem?
Does this sound like an Xorg problem or a ports/ld problem?
