The new driver really seems to have a major problem. I figured out that 
you just need an image with 2047px width to screw up the driver.

ATTENTION: This can crash your X server and corrupt memory!

Example: [1], an otherwise harmless picture. Every picture with the same 
width will work, too. I could trigger the bug at least with Firefox, 
Midori, Epiphany and EOG. It looks like some applications like Chromium 
alter the size, so they don't trigger it.
