Okay. Now, are you sure that EXA was enabled when you saw the ghosting
with Option "AccelMethod" "EXA" as well? As noted in the other bug you
mentioned, there's a known upstream bug in XAA
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4456) that causes a
ghosting effect in the desktop rendered by Nautilus.
If you really see the ghosting with EXA enabled, are the symptoms the
same as with XAA? Otherwise, there might be a different bug in EXA
causing similar symptoms.

Would it be a lot of effort to load radeonfb and try it?

Might still be interesting.
