I can't even use XDMCP to log-in to Fedora 12 (Constantine), due to random

These seem to be due to a bad interaction between the damage tracking for the 
Composite extension and damage tracking for the shadow framebuffer.

So can you try disabling the composite extension with '-extension Composite'?
