#477 screensaver=[drm:r128_freelist_get] *ERROR* returning NULL!

ATI OpenGL (71)

It seems whenever my screensaver (it's an OpenGL one in
KDE, if that matters) is running I get
"[drm:r128_freelist_get] *ERROR* returning NULL!" filling
up my messages file (it pops one in there at varing times,
usually between 10 seconds to 2 1/2 minutes after the
previous one). I have an "ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128
RF/SG AGP (rev 0)" (so says /proc/pci).

Other than it filling up my messages file, though, I'm not
seeing any problems--it works great, no freezing, no
crashing, not even a pause between when I wiggle the
mouse and the screensaver goes away. Very odd. I'm
guessing it's detecting a problem that doesn't exist.

    Indeed, this condition can occur during normal operation, so
    I've degraded this to a debugging message in DRI CVS, as in
    other drivers.
