I currently have version 7.7.1-4 of libgl1-mesa-dri,
and version 2.6.32-30 of linux-image-2.6.32-5-686.
Perhaps this bug should be retitled; I just tried blender again,
and didn't notice any display problems.
In the original bug report, I also mentioned stellarium as having
display problems, and that is still the case. When stellarium starts,
it displays a splash screen. On this machine with the G400, the splash
screen shows only as a blank whitish square, except for a faint outline
of the version number in the lower right corner. Then stellarium seems
to run normally--I can zoom in and out, pan around, etc. But the mouse
pointer is invisible, which is an obvious problem.
Again, please let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.
I'll be glad to test again with 7.10 once it propagates to testing.
