Thanks, I'm glad to hear that.
Hope the new driver would be out soon.

I don't usually use these silly emoticons, but I found cause for celebration after the 177.70 driver today, so here goes:

Thank you so much for fixing this problem. I grabbed the 177.68 driver last night thinking I would have better luck with a beta driver, but no such luck. I checked back today just on the off chance of there being another update and lo and behold, 177.70 ftw! It works (almost) perfectly and (most importantly) there is no crash when running OpenGL apps with compositing under gnome.

THANKS AGAIN!

Can someone commit this? I haven't ran into any serious issues with it yet, and it works like a charm with the new compiz, opengl, etc.

Would be nice if it came out of beta and found it's way into the ports tree

Nice work guys!
