Does that mean that the packages in sid work?

You hit right on the mark; the report is very well written and
informative in general, the lives of Debian maintainers would be easier
if all bug reports were like this. :)
I noticed a couple of things which I wonder if they're related:

Does setting the MESA_NO_MMX environment variable make a difference?

Does not using the HAL module make a difference?

Does running in depth 16 make a difference?

Is this correct?

Does running at a lower virtual resolution make a difference?
