> sos report from abrt

It's weird but there are many pieces of information which are not part of the sosreport:

* your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) -- I guess there is none, right?
* X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) -- yes, even that is missing
* output of the dmesg command, and
* system log (/var/log/messages)

Please attach these logs to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link above.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

The xorg-x11-drv-nouveau rebase is now sitting in CVS, and should resolve this problem.  It can't be built in brew yet however as it's pending a libdrm update.

hmm, I can again see occasional lock ups no related to screen orientation. We saw those in 6.0 beta also .. going to find the reason and the bug number
