xorg log with the crash

With 2.6.31-rc2, X server crashes each time
I change options such as anti-aliasing or
display effects with KDE
this does not happen with 2.6.30.
(Could not bisect or test rc1 as that crashes on boot for me)
attached Xorg log with crash
I'll attach dmesg and kernel config as well

Hardware: T500
Software: Xorg version is the one that ships with FC11

Opened a bug in freedesktop.org bugzilla - maybe this way
someone will look at it?

Let's track on freedesktop.org. Closing here.

KMS is recommended anyway.
