Check the past month's discussion on freebsd-x11.  Some of us have
been having the same problem with 6.9.  Don't have a resolution yet :-(

I see it first in Mozilla but some other X apps too like Emacs I believe.
My system locks hard unless I disable DRI but then the blue blotches
make it impossible to use.
