Question XGL/Compiz - ATI - Dapper: GLX X server error

Hi all: I've got this apparently unknown error while running Xgl on my Dapper (full) box, and it reads like this:

"BadLength (poly request too large or internal xlib.....)"
"major opcode: 143 (GLX)"
"minor opcode: 1 (GLX_Render)"
"serial number: 113"
"current serial: 114"

This is stripped down of course, but it's the actual error I'm getting right now.

Not sure what to do at this point, so any assistance would come in handy. :P

EDIT: I noticed that when my kubuntu boots up, and KDM is loaded, the screen just stays on gray with the cursor
as an hourglass, which I can move with the mouse. UPDATE: This happens with startx as well.

EDIT: When run from terminal using startx (as my normal user), I usually get a "caught signal 11" error from X.

My specs:
P4 2.4 Ghz w/o HT
RAM: 1 Gig
Two 120 GB hard drives
ATI Radeon 9550 256 MB
and so on.

I'm running kernel version 2.6.17, compiled as DEBs and installed that way.

(Can't read my logs right now since I'm posting from another computer, but would gladly post them if you want me to.)
