Replying to myself - clearly the answer is yes, Debian have borked it -
for all cards. There are several instances of the same bug files against

If anyone else has hit/hits this, the quick fix is to downgrade
xlibmesa-dri to 4.3.0-0pre1v5, which can be grabbed from experimental at

Given that one of the duplicate bugs was files over 3 weeks ago, one
wonders why they didn't fix this before uploading it to unstable, but I
suppose they have to keep life interesting.....
