Xorg.0.log from 'intel' driver crash

Description of problem:
Have a machine with a "Intel Corporation 82G965 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)" graphics adapter connected to a ViewSonic VX2235wm LCD panel.  To this point I've been running with the 'intel' driver as it correctly supported the 1680x1050 resolution.  I did a massive update this morning, including updating to:


After reboot, X is crashing with the attached log.  Interesting bits are:

0: /usr/bin/Xorg(xf86SigHandler+0x71) [0x47fb11]
1: /lib64/libc.so.6 [0x364f830280]
2: /usr/bin/Xorg(xf86RandR12CreateScreenResources+0x62) [0x4b7882]
3: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so [0x2b2427fcb56a]
4: /usr/bin/Xorg(main+0x2e5) [0x4333b5]
5: /lib64/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xf4) [0x364f81d974]
6: /usr/bin/Xorg(FontFileCompleteXLFD+0x229) [0x4327f9]

Switching to either the 'i810' driver or the 'vesa' driver appears to work (although I lose the 1680x1050 resolution :-()

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Maybe that backtrace is just a very common error path, but there are quite a
few other bugs which show X in the same death spiral:

Really?  fc7 package?  You sure you mean to do that?
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2009-05-19 12:02:36 EDT
Damn you RPM versioning!  Sorry about that.  I should have realized that was a really old package instead of ASSuming that RPM/yum were correct and no updates to the package were available.  Things are working lots better with xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.6.5-9.21.el5 (i.e. latest 5.4 package.)
