The latest debug using the latest master and I got an update from
xorg-edgers. I don't know if it included the patch for the opengl issue or
not. I tried running the debug three times: 1st attempt I let the debug run
its course and the 2nd and 3rd times I tried to end it by using control-c.
Terminal capture






Also I need some feedback whether or not this is helpful or I need to
change or just stop.
