NetBSD ragnos 6.0_RC1 NetBSD 6.0_RC1 (GENERIC) #0: Fri

I've upgraded my ${DAYJOB} workstation from 6.0_BETA2 to 6.0_RC1
this morning at work, and I had to fallback to 6.0_BETA2 as Xorg fails
I'll try to be as precise as I can but I have no error log to show
as Xorg (from Xorg.0.log) seems happy and no errors of any kind are

The workstation has the following graphic

RADEON(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics" (ChipID = 0x9616)                

It has DRI/DRM and AIGLX enabled:

This card showed some artifacts before but it never was that bad, 
with RC1, xfce hangs forever; more interesting, twm draws a black
backgroud and everytime you pop the menu it will stay drawn in the
When using RC1's, switching to the non-graphical console
using Ctrl-Alt-F1 is very slow and sometimes don't even
xdm doesn't draw the whole "NetBSD" login box, the input area works
but is not displayed.
. Upgrade to NetBSD 6.0_RC1
. xinit or xdm
Downgrade to 6.0_BETA2

Apologies that we did not get to this PR before now.
Have you tried a newer version of NetBSD and X?
Are you still having the issues and are you ok with me shutting this
PR? Kind regards, Chris
