Still needed; has not been confirmed to be fixed:

"Fix regression which caused desktop effects not working with some
drivers. Fixes bug 243991. See SVN commit 1167908." [1]

"very likely. there's a massive amount of "similar" problem reports (freezes -
press shift+alt+f12 - or fragmented screes depending on the resolution, latter
one just like this on your particular GPU, see the other two dupes and bug
#241402, while it's not clear that latter one is really related)" [2]

"I just did a commit, but I do not know if it fixed it. I have to properly
investigate the issue but currently I am lacking the time. If I get a patch
before the release I will send a notice to the release team." [3]
