All files updated for test 3.  My laptop still crashes often when
logging out or restarting.  It feels like it is related to networking
some how in that if i browse the internet and the browser sits a site
and never completely loads and i close the browser, that process seems
to not abort.  Another symptom is that leaving my laptop running for
long periods of time then logging out the screen will just turn white
and lockup.  How can I trap info about this bug to send??

This also happens on my HP laptop - anytime that X shuts down, the 
machine crashes hard, requiring a power cycle.  I even have to disable
the Red Hat Graphic Boot or I cannot even get to the X login screen.

If there is anything I can try, please let me know.

I had the same problem on my ASUS L8400L laptop. The solution proposed
here http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=121953
worked just fine for me. I've ugraded to kernel-2.6.6-1.370 (since I
couldn't find build 347) and the problem is gone.

Note that the file /var/log/gdm/:0.log on my machine contained the line 
"EE) VESA(0): vm86() syscall generated signal 11" as in the bugreport
Comment 5 Gary Thomas 2004-05-20 11:57:47 EDT
I upgraded to Fedora Core 2 (final), with kernel 2.6.6-1.358, and the
problem is solved for me as well.
