Possible Fedora 11 Intel Video Driver issue.

I have an IBM Thinkpad X30 that I upgraded from FC10 to FC11.  It has an Intel i830 Integrated Graphics Chipset.  Everything worked fine on FC10 with XAA acceleration and DRI.  After the upgrade, I am getting UXA Acceleration with DRI2, but there is font corruption, etc...  Also, when I attempt to play videos via Xine, VLC, Mplayer, or Gnome Mplayer; X crashes with no error.  After a great deal of trial and error, I found that if I change the Driver for VLC, Mplayer, and Gnome Mplayer from xv to opengl; I can play the video.  However it is choppy and the video cannot be resized from its original size.  Xine however crashes, even when I set the video driver on command line. 

My questions are:

1.  Is there anyone out there with the Intel i830 chipset, maybe even a Thinkpad X30, that can confirm this behavior?  I know this is a laptop, but the Intel video problem seems better suited to this larger audience, and Intel video driver issues are not limited to laptops.  I could be wrong though...
2.  It is hard for me to know if there is already a bug for this, given the myriad of Intel video bugs that are currently open for FC11.  I would be happy to open one, and include whatever info would be of help.  I am not sure if there is a way to turn on enhanced X11 logging, or if there is any other logs besides Xorg.#.log. 
3.  Does anyone know of any beta kernels and/or Intel video drivers I can try?
4.  Before I go through the effort, is it worth trying a clean install?  I can't imagine how a clean install would help this, as the xorg.conf is generated automatically on each start of X11, but maybe someone knows a rational explanation. 

Any and all suggestions welcome.  ;)
