vesa driver crashes X when an application tries to use Composite with XRender

Description

I use Slackware64-current in a VM. When I try to start up KDE-4.2.3 inside the VM, with the default configuration files, the xserver crashes. By default the vesa-driver is being used. KDE4 tries to enable Desktop Effects based on XRender if it finds the vesa-driver. This does work fine on a real machine, but crashes the xserver inside virtualbox.

Tested version was VirtualBox 2.2.2, Xorg-server 1.4.2, xf86-video-vesa-1.3.0
