.. why did that commit ever even get far enough to get to me?

It seems to happen on any reasonably modern Intel graphics - at least
it happens on both my laptop and my desktop. And I'm running
bog-standard F20, so either nobody ever even tested that broken thing,
or nobody bothered to look at the messages to notice it was broken.
Either way, it shows a rather distinct lack of actual testing,
wouldn't you say?

I really see no excuse for crap like this. If I find obvious bugs
immediately, on my very normal hardware and very normal distribution,
that means that there is something wrong in the development process.
If I was some subtle timing-dependent thing, or I were to be using
eally odd hardware, or I had to do something special to trigger it,
that would be one thing. But that's definitely not the case here.
