Bug#495483: Another instance of the DoSwapInterval segfault


I have the DoSwapInterval segfault with Xorg 1.4.2 too on a MacBook
Pro (amd64). It can be systematically triggered e.g. by calling
gnome-screensaver-preferences.  The trace is the same as already given
by other people (see below for the exact trace). Faulty line 80 of
GL/glx/swap_interval.c:80 says:

  (void) (*cx->pGlxScreen->swapInterval)(cx->drawPriv, interval);

knowing that the swapInterval field is set in GL/glx/glxdri.c to
function __glXDRIdrawableSwapInterval from GL/glx/glxdri.c. The code
of this latter function (the function that certainly segfaults) is

  static int
  __glXDRIdrawableSwapInterval(__GLXdrawable *baseDrawable, int interval)
      __GLXDRIdrawable *draw = (__GLXDRIdrawable *) baseDrawable;
      draw->driDrawable->swap_interval = interval;
      return 0;

Now, there is a comment on top of the code of glXDRIdrawableFoo that

 * \bug
 * We're jumping through hoops here to get the DRIdrawable which the DRI
 * driver tries to keep to it self...  cf. FIXME in \c createDrawable.

Could it be related to the crash?

Alternatively, could it be possible that the cast from "__GLXdrawable *"
to "__GLXDRIdrawable *" (a cast which expects that the room needed
for the extra field driDrawable does not wrongly overlap with some
elsewhere useful data) is wrongly compiled by gcc at some optimization
levels (I'm not a C expert)? Definition of __GLXDRIdrawable is:

  typedef struct __GLXDRIdrawable __GLXDRIdrawable;
  struct __GLXDRIdrawable {
      __GLXdrawable      base;
      __DRIdrawable      *driDrawable;

I'm ready to recompile the package after some changes are made, if
