After upgrading to Mesa 10.1.2-1 from Mesa 10.1.1-2, users reported significant performance regressions. See: I was also able to recreate this using my ATI HD6850 and Europa Universalis 4, Unigine Valley benchmark, and other OpenGL applications. So far this seems to be limited to ATI cards.

Downgrading to 10.1.1-2 resolved the issue.

Steps to reproduce:
* Use an ATI video card
* Use Radeon open-source graphics
* Upgrade to Mesa 10.1.2-1
This task depends upon

replacing with the arch 32bit copy in Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib
also fixes the problem
as it looks like a glibc version mismatch

This is a bug in the steam package. It shouldn't supply its own libstdc++. This is what happens when linking gcc 4.9 compiled c++ libraries with older libstdc++ libraries.

This is not our bug. You must remove from steam runtime, replacing it is useless.
