Plot3d causes crash with radeon driver and Debian testing

I'm using Mathematica 7.0.1 on Debian testing with the open source
radeon driver (xserver-xorg-video-radeon 1:6.12.3-1).

Every time I use Plot3d, I get a blank image first. If I then rotate the
plot, I see the 3d surface. After stopping the rotation Mathematica
crashes and I get the following output:
failed to create pixmap
failed to create pixmap
failed to create pixmap
Mathematica: radeon_lock.c:65: radeonGetLock: Assertion `drawable !((void *)0)

Is there someone else with this problem?

The only (partial) solution I found so far is to start Mathematica using
the "-mesa" option which makes rotating 3d plots rather slow.

Best regards
