Description Will Woods 2008-03-10 14:34:36 EDT
On my rawhide machine, xorg segfaults when you click on the "Other.." user item
in GDM. 


Here's the backtrace:

Doh. Too much time with python tracebacks or something; read this one backwards.
It's probably an evdev bug. 

Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2008-03-11 19:30:12 EDT
Unable to repro this here.  That backtrace is _really_ weird, the sis driver
normally doesn't set modes with VBE.

Not sure this is strong enough for a beta blocker.
Comment 4 Will Woods 2008-03-11 20:21:37 EDT
Whatever it was, it's stopped happening now. Closing RAWHIDE; if it comes back I'll reopen.
