Issue is 100% reproducible on T400/Intel

Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2010-08-04 12:24:49 EDT
"By 100% reproducible" do you mean that it's:

 - Reproducible on a newly created account?
 - Reproducible on a different computer

It strikes me as unlikely that this always happens - that it doesn't have something to do with your specific configuration. (As a rough guess it's very unlikely to be a graphics problem or a driver bug.)

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
