Our bugzilla database had a catastrophic failure on June 13, 2006
which lost all bug changes from Thurs June 9th through 13th.  I have
bugzilla email records of the time period however, and will be
restoring as many changes as I can manually.

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2006-06-14 13:32:17 EDT
It is still recommended to report upstream, which automagically
makes it visible to the plethora of PPC Xorg hackers upstream such as
benh, and thus increases the likelyhood of it getting fixed if it
is still outstanding.

Reassigning to the component owner (ajax) for now, as the only way
we're likely to diagnose/fix the problem internally is if someone
with physical access to the hardware in Westford is able to
investigate directly.
