Description of problem:
At least 2.6.6-1.397,2.6.6-1.394 and 2.6.6-1.391 on i686 have
this nasty habit that if any openGL application is touched,
say some random xscreensaver, then a machine locks up instantly
and thoroughly. glxgears are equally effective. Nothing works
but a power switch and, clearly, there are no traces in logs.
kernel-2.6.5-1.358 does not sport such behaviour.
lspci output please?
That is one from a machine in question (Acer laptop):

To that particular one I will have an access again only in July.
should be fixed in 403 from http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/

fixed now ?
> fixed now ?
It looks that way. At least on a machine where this trouble
was showing and where I can check.
