I can confirm this. I got just the same problem on my laptop, a Dell with an ATI Radeon card, X version 4.2.1-12.1. When I start glxgears on kernel 2.4.23 or 2.6.0-test9, it all hangs. No problems on 2.4.22 (or earlier), which were configured just the same as .23, apart from the low latency patches (which aren't available yet for .23).

Should I file a bug in the BTS?
