Please file a bug report in X.Org bugzilla against the "xorg" component,
at and be sure to attach your X server log file,
and config file as individual uncompressed file attachments.  Once you've
filed a report to X.Org, please paste the URL here and Red Hat will track
the bug in the upstream bugzilla.  When a fix becomes available, we will
review the patch for consideration in a future build.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-03 12:00:19 UTC
Thanks, we're tracking the issue in the X.Org bugzilla now.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-03 12:13:02 UTC
This might be a duplicate of bug #178476 also.  Please have a look at that
one, and us know if you think it is the same issue.  If so, we'll close this
bug as a duplicate of bug #178476, and add the upstream tracker bug to
that bug instead.

Thanks in advance.

Oops, I hit NOTABUG by accident...

Comment 6 Paul F. Johnson 2006-02-03 12:27:20 UTC
It sounds similar to #178476, however the speed has increased slightly, but the
opening of the terminal window, nautlius refreshes etc seems extremely slow (the
terminal window opening registers as 100% processor in use!)

Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-05 15:28:37 UTC
Your upstream bug report indicates you are using Fedora rawhide from Nov, 2005.
There have been a very large number of updates to Fedora development since
November, so it is recommended to update the whole system to current Fedora

Other users have reported similar bugs in the last few months which affect
ati, nvidia, Intel, and other hardware, all with very similar symptoms as
described in this report.  With the latest X updates that have been released
in the last few days, the majority of these bug reports have been updated
by their reporters to indicate the problems have been resolved in the latest
updates.  Bug #178476 which I referenced above has also just been confirmed
to be resolved, so I suspect it is possible this bug is now resolved as well.

Please update to the latest packages, and ensure you have installed:


Also ensure that you've updated to the latest Fedora devel kernel, and
rebooted into it.  Once you've tested the new X packages, please update
the report to indicate wether the problem is still present or not.  It's
also recommended to update the upstream X.Org report.

Thanks in advance.

Comment 8 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-09 17:12:32 UTC
Assuming the problem is resolved in the latest packages, and resolving as
"RAWHIDE".  If the problem remains still, reopen the bug and we'll add
it back to our upstream tracker.

Thanks in advance.
