Bug#342053: DirectFrameBuffer crashes on PPC systems if HW accelerated drivers are used

Yes, i saw the vanished lines in your screenshots and i belive this may be #385026, which is GTKDFB 2.8.x related and affects all HW platforms. As Frans said, this is a quite annoying bug and i'll try to see if i can fix it in GTKDFB 2.8.20 with a small patch (but i'm not sure it's going to be an easy fix).

Is it fixed in 2.10.x ?

Basing on my past tests with different GTK+ 2.10 versions, it is.

This would be a reason to go with gtk 2.10.x, those packages are built and
uploaded to experimental, right ? So we could do a second build using the 2.10
stuff ?

Yes, GDKDFB backend found in 2.10.4 is more stable and clean than one found in 2.8.20, which is an old backported DFB backend some months old. If we can fix this issue[1] before GTK 2.10.5 is out, we may prefer switching to GTK 2.10.5 later, otherwise we may need to backport current GDKDFB backend from 2.10.4 to 2.8.20 for immediate use. 2.10.x, compared to 2.8.x, offers nothing we really need, but of course avoiding dirty backports wouldn't be bad!
