Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 13:32:07 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

I'm going to assume this is fixed by now, that driver version was ages ago.  If it's not please reopen with updated version information.

Comment 8 cornel panceac 2014-11-20 06:37:50 UTC
haven't seen this for a long time but also i've switched to fedora 20 as soon as it was available.
