Now that I think about it, I've never had a DRI section in any of my xorg.conf 
files. A few years ago I think it might have been an Load "dri" option in 
the "Module" section, but was never enabled and I remember being advised to 
disable it if it was. DRI has not appeared in an xorg.conf file for me in a 
long time... I think not since it was xfree86.conf or XF86Config.
Do ATI cards use it? Because nvidia does not.
To be more clear, the system I'm using to type this reply has nothing related 
to DRI in its xorg.conf and all is well with all GL apps and screen savers
