All these run as root.

There is a slight loss of parity.

One possibility is a stray library: root and users by default have
different paths and path orders? Have you tried running the apps from a
console to see if there are any errors?

Try running ldd against one of the smaller applications, and then again
against each of the libraries listed. Its tedious, hence the suggestion
to use a small test. look for missing libraries (they show as not
found) and wrong gcc versions if shown.

Default ati-drivers slowly working through issues

o/ woot o/

thy fglrx woes have been fix-ed!

for the curious reading now or later, I had to do quite a strange
process. Due I think to upgrading kernels, ati-drivers, and all-sorts
of things I had to delete some stuff manually:

1. uninstall ati-drivers
2. troll around the filesystem and delete anything with fglrx in
the name! There was lots of stuff
in /usr/lib, /usr/share, /etc, etc! Also
deleted /lib/modules/.../fglrx.ko
3. delete some broken lib links (that were pointing
to /someting/ati/something which no longer existed). These
included:
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
/usr/lib/libGL.so
4. ran `sudo eselect opengl set xorg-x11` which now worked
(wouldn't before)
5. reconfigure X for the kernel's radeon driver. restart X. DRI
wasn't working with the kernel radeon driver, so I had to
recompile the kernel, add drm, radeon, install, reboot a couple
of times
6. once glxinfo reported direct rendering, I then re-installed
ati-drivers
7. reconfigure X with fglrx module instead of radeon
8. run `sudo eselect opengl set ati`, restart X and voila!

Who would have thought it was so simple!

at last, I get some decent frame rates with the new driver. All my
screensavers work (no SHM issues as I was having before) no segfaults.
Aaaahhh, sweet. Let's hope it doesn't all change too soon!

thanks everyone for the tips,
