1.1535 boots too, though I did not try 1.1536. The 1.1538 fails for me too,
on all my computers. So, the window is very small.

I'm going to check if this is the VDS0 problem one Japanese gentleman
identified (I cannot find that bug for some reason)
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-09-07 19:20:26 EDT
Reportedly 1542+ is fixed in this regard, could you please confirm?
Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2005-09-07 20:08:01 EDT
Indeed, 1.1542_FC5 works.
