At home I have PC with FBSD 8 Stable. Video card is ATI HD 5750. This card worked fine only with vesa driver. After release ATI driver 6.13.2 I tried this and get screen corruption. For me it was some progress because older version ati drivers (6.13.0. and 6.13.1) led to lockup at X start. These screen corruptions was resolved after mesa upgrade to version 7.8.2. Currently mesa version in ports is 7.4.4. So maybe there is benefit for upgrade mesa version in ports to latest. All whats need for upgrade mesa is just modify Makefiles. I am tested only this card (HD 5750) and dont know how latest mesa verison will work with another video cards.

PS Sorry for my english.
