Any news about this tiling error?

It's already been reported as a bug in Ubuntu Jaunty, in the belief
that it "reduces video performance" [1], and is also mentioned on a
similar bug in Fedora [2].

[1] <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=444328#c37>
[2] <https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/329266>

Thanks
