Description of problem:
Occasionally X session will hang. Display remains list. No mouse pointer visible. caps lock etc inoperative,  on-screen clock frozen. disk/network activity leds on system unit flashing. Able to ssh in remotely. System running at very low cpu.
- no errors from dmesg
- some errors in Xorg.0.log

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

Errors noted from Xorg.0.log

(EE) RADEON(0): ADVANCE_RING count != expected (14 vs 16) at radeon_textured_videofuncs.c:1623
FreeType: couldn't open face /usr/share/fonts/cjkuni/ukai.ttc: 1
[xkb] BOGUS LENGTH in write keyboard desc, expected 5788, got 5804

However since no timestamps cannot be sure whether it's related, however last modified timestamp on logfile approx ties with time of "hang"

How reproducible:
Not very. About weekly

This error message

(EE) RADEON(0): ADVANCE_RING count != expected (14 vs 16) at radeon_textured_videofuncs.c:1623

is like zillion times in the end of the log. Was not able to find this string on bugs.freedesktop.org

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F11_bugs#Miscellaneous_problems_with_ATI_.2F_AMD_graphics_adapters Does any advice there helps you?

Have not seen this recently -- now on F12/rawhide, so suggest closure.
