Opaque (i.e. unusable display) when using VB 3.0.0 r49315 on X11 radeonhd

When trying to use VB 3.0.0 r49315 on my (K)unbuntu 9.04 (jaunty) x86_64 (aka amd64) system, I hardly see anything because most of the guest OS (e.g. Windows XP) is opaque. Net result is that VB is unsuable with radeonhd X11 driver (with enabled DRI, 3d support, accelerated).

In contrast, if I'm using the radeon X11 driver (without DRI (?), no 3d support, but accelerated), the display looks all right. In this case, it is no problem to use the VB guest OS.

I trying to add some screenshots of this...

If you are interested in helping us on this, you might also want to give this test build (disclaimer  here) a try

since we made changes to the fix and would like feedback that it still works for everyone.
