Great, thanks.

[Adding back Nicolas, he seems to have gone missing from the list

I have done some testing of that patch and for me it's a definite
improvement. The test I did was removing a white plane from a white
background. Without the patch, the driver will output black where
the plane was for the current frame (since the driver does that
disc-area thing for the largest hidden part of the background).
With the patch, I get no visual glitches when removing a plane.

I use a plane to scroll a text, and if you know what to look for,
the black rectangle that flickers by as the plane with the scrolling
text is removed is little bit disturbing. Not a significant problem,
and maybe only geeks notice it, but still...

Just wanted to say that the resulting "black hole" mentioned in the
other thread really does exist and that the patch may make sense
beyond the fact that it removes usage of undocumented features.

I have not seen any bad side effects fro the patch, but admittedly
my testing was very limited and I did not try to remove the plane
while doing other stuff with the driver. So, there might still be
reasons for removing planes immediately...
