   font glyph corruption on dialog box

Bug description:
   * This makes it impossible to read some text (usually yes/no questions) in 
Libreoffice.  This makes it more difficult to use LibreOffice on AMD graphics.

  [Test Case]

  1. Open for instance LibreOffice Writer
  2. Copy some text to the clipboard
  3. Open the Paste Special dialog with CTRL-SHIFT-V

  [Regression Potential]

   This modifies glamor to be used less.  There might be a potential for
  a performance hit in other cases?

  [Original Report]
  I get a font glyph corruption in various dialog boxes in libreoffice. This 
happens using the following graphic configuration:
         description: VGA compatible controller
         product: Bonaire [FirePro W5100]
         vendor: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]
         physical id: 0
         bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0
         version: 00
         width: 64 bits
         clock: 33MHz
         capabilities: vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom
         configuration: driver=radeon latency=0

  I don't see this in other graphics (NVIDIA, INTEL).

  Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open for instance LibreOffice Writer
  2. Copy some text to the clipboard
  3. Open the Paste Special dialog with CTRL-SHIFT-V

  I attach a screenshot of the corrupted font.
