Bug Description

CID: 201306-13641 HP Pavilion 15

1. Install 12.04.3 + updates (3.8.0-34), boot to desktop
2. The jockey-gtk icon will pop up, Install the proprietary FGLRX driver from it
3. play the video file "How fast.ogg"
in /usr/share/example-content/Ubuntu_Free_Culture_Showcase

Expected Result:
* The video file could be played correctly.

Actual Result:
* X freeze, no response from keyboard, mouse, but you can hear the audio from the video clip, and you still can ssh to the system.

This happens to
fglrx-experimental-13 2:13.101-0ubuntu0.0.2
fglrx-updates 2:12.104-0ubuntu0.0.1

Also, this issue could be reproduced through running the "gstreamer-properties", push the "Test" button in the "Default Output" section of the Video tab.

The video file could be correctly played with radeon driver.

I reconnect the Ethernet cable to make a timestamp, the video was played after that
(and X freezes)
