Confirmed this is still a problem on maverick, even with the mesa update from sarvatt/mesa PPA.

While i865 is supported on Lucid still, it's not on newer versions of Ubuntu, and so we're not going to be backporting patches for it (except in extraordinarily rare situations where there is a "perfect patch".) We've found that 8xx is fairly fragile and so a patch that fixes an issue on one 8xx card can have a high risk of breaking some other slight variant of the same card.
