File a bug against the X server attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log
and /etc/X11/xorg.conf and a link to the pics above.

We can't debug the problem just by screenshot we need the actual log
file info.

Don't bother about this -- just file it as xorg-x11 or something. That's
our job to know, where to refile it. It's better to have a bug filed under
bad component than not to have it at all. Of course, I am not promoting
blind filing everything under xorg-x11, you should do your research, but
if you just don't know, than let it not stop you from filing a bug.

Certainly I hope that we should be able to fix your problems rather than
force you to downgrade, I have a couple things which I would certainly do
in such case.

1) package-cleanup --problems
2) package-cleanup --cleandupes
3) rpm -Va
4) LANG=C find /usr /etc -exec rpm -qf '{}' ;
|grep 'is not owned by any packages*$'

(rinse, dry, repeat until there is nothing seriously wrong in any of these
report -- don't bother about changed times, *.rpm{save,orig,new} and such
things, but missing files are problem; the last test requires most time
and most judgement to decide what's wrong, but to be 100% sure everything
is all right, I found it necessary after one very broken upgrade to F9
Beta).

Just found a solution - commenting out Option "AccelMethod" "exa"
solved the issue. Since EXA is obsolete, it's not a solution but
rather a workaround.
