Yes, I'm quite sure. This happens with xfce4, kde4 and just plain

I've seen similar distortion (though not quite the same as what's in my
screenshot) from the radeon driver even before testing this new
version.  I will, however, confirm these various corruptions with the
radeon driver happen less with E17.  

I've also seen the same thing on OpenBSD.  The distortion I've seen
with the driver/Xorg from ports I've also seen on Slackware when
disabling KMS, so I'm quite convinced this is a UMS-specific bug.
