Default [180.18] Xorg 1.5 with enabled Composite extension crash just after KDE4 startup

I've just tried to install X.org 1.5 from debian experimental. It crashes after KDE4 startup if Composite extension is enabled. Problem is not reproduceable with "nv" driver (probably because it don't support composite?)
Code:
Backtrace:
0: /usr/bin/X(xorg_backtrace+0x3b) [0x812f0fb]

I get a similar crash using kde 4.2 beta2. Kwin crashes my X server (1.5) after a few seconds of use (not immediately). If I use compiz as the window manager instead it is ok, so I bet kwin is causing it for you too.

(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "BackingStore" "true"

This option is known to lead to crashes with Xorg 1.5.
Put it to "false", it solved the crashes for me.

Thanks. Turning off BackingStore seems to have stopped my crash.

This may be a qt issue as there is a fix for something that sounds
like the same thing under the KDE trunk/qt-copy patches. FYI.
Some distributions (mine is Fedora 9) are updating qt soon with
these latest patches.
