It doesn't get rid of it, no, but on my card (a Radeon 9000; I wonder what it is about these low-level Radeons that's causing the problems?) the mutagen effect functioned properly in 7.0, whereas it doesn't in 8.0 or 8.1.
I've managed to reproduce this issue. We're going to be working with ATI on a fix, but in the meantime, using -dxlevel 70 is the supported workaround for this issue.
