This is basically the same set of packages that got upgraded for me.
You said you compiled 1.2.2? There is 1.2.3 out for radeonhd? Could you
try installing that from experimental and see how that goes?

Nop I compiled 1.2.3 sorry because it's not in experimental for amd64 yet.
I'll try to use the package from experimental as soon as he is compiled for
amd64, it shouldn't take more than a week I think.

The strange thing is when downgrading to 1.2.1-3 (the version I can get from
experimental) I still have direct rendering ok according to glxinfo althought
the debian changelog didn't mention backporting the patch for DRI in their
1.2.1-3 versions. Software which ask DRI accept launching indeed but they are
as slow as if it was software rendering. What could make the X server claim
there is DRI althought it is software rendering ?
