I know 3D is horribly broken in F11 :( as well as many other things,

Not if it is stuck inside the kernel, kill -9 only kills things
as they come out of the kernel.

And since the OP indicated he was using the ATI driver, I'd say this
might be a classic case study in why proprietary, closed-source
drivers are bad from the user's perspective too, not just the
distro's.

I am using the standard OpenSource XOrg ATI driver "radeon" with the
appropriate DRM/Mesa bits as per a standard F11 release.
I have three other systems with F11 on them, some various
ATI chipsets and some Intel, all of these have 3D issues mainly
major ones with F11.
Certainly, in my opinion, F11 not suitable for 3D apps at the moment ...
