Anything I can do to help? Are you really planning on updating mesa for
FC-6, or would it be worth my time to see if I can isolate a few
important r300 fixes and backport those?
Planning a backport, yes.  There are apparently enough Intel and <=R200
issues fixed in CVS that it should just be done whole.  Hopefully 6.5.1
happens Really Freaking Soon so I don't have to ship CVS bits in FC6.

That said, if updated srpms for mesa and xorg-x11-server were to
magically appear in Bugzilla for me, I certainly wouldn't object ;)

Magically appearing SRPM for latest mesa-CVS filed here:

I've been using this with great success on an x86_64 in both 64 and 32
bit mode (I compiled it in a 32 bit chroot and installed the result on
my 64 bit Fedora for use with googleearth).

You also speak about xorg-x11-server changes, I haven't got any for you
as things work fine for me with the current xorg-x11-server in RawHide.

I was expecting that build system fixes would be required, since xorg-x11-server builds against the mesa-source package. Have you attempted to rebuild the X server with a mesa-source from CVS?
