This is a problem with the accelerated copies in the new driver.  You
can work around it
by editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/xo1.75.conf  and changing Option "Copy" to false

This will still give you accelerated solids, compositing and XVideo.
You will notice a slowdown
in performance.  I am looking into it.
