Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It happens using the kernel-smp-2.6.15-1.1826.2.4_FC5, and the 2.6.15 vanilla
kernel, but works without any problems using the 2.6.15-rc5n vanilla kernel.

From the description above, it sounds like this might perhaps be a kernel
bug causing the problem. Does the problem still occur with your system
fully updated to current Fedora development?
Any idea what kernel changes might have caused such a problem to
no idea. if it is still a problem with the latest packages, the output of
/proc/iomem from both the good and bad kernels would be interesting to see.
Could you provide the info from comment #7?
kernel-2.6.15-1.1909_FC5 is the current kernel in rawhide. Please upgrade
to that kernel, and do a full update of all the latest Fedora devel packages.
Once you've updated, reboot into the new kernel and test X, then update the bug
report with your results. Please do this as soon as you can, as the FC5test3
deadline is quickly approaching.

> no idea. if it is still a problem with the latest packages,
Now using the latest devel packages and the 2.6.15-1.1909_FC5 kernel version the
problem is not reproducible anymore, even using the vanilla 2.6.15n kernel
(exactly the same binary files) on which the issue was previously reported.

IMHO, it didn't look like a kernel problem.
Ok, looks like something in rawhide fixes it for you, so we'll consider
it resolved for now. If it recurs, just reopen the report and we'll
reinvestigate. Thanks for testing.
