only fix i care about:
Running "Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.0" in wireframe mode with tessellation enabled no longer causes the application to fail on ATI Radeon™ HD 5000 Series cards
and here i thought it was the application, got the crash like 4 times before i decided not to run the wireframe(always crashed zooming in on the deck of the "ship" i guess)
