Description of problem:
Random crashes when scrolling text (editor and console), more often
under gnome than kde.
option "NoAccel" fixes problem, but then windows are too slow to use.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login to gnome
2.open console (small)
3. type 'set' - this is just to get a long line which wraps around
4. scroll console up, bringing long line into view.
1. open a text editor,
2. load a large file,
3. use scroll bar to move text up/down
gnome will crash frequently (within a minute or so), kde only once
an hour or so.
my screen was 1280x1024 @ 60Hz
Actual Results: kde:
May 26 00:10:44 grommet kdm: Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly
May 26 01:00:34 grommet kdm: Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly
May 26 21:11:18 grommet kdm: Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly

Expected Results: nothing
XFree86.org know of problems in this driver,
Just want to let you know that someone is using it and is
seeing the problem.
Attach your X server log and configuration file(s) using the link below.
After several days of checking all options (including trying to get another
AGP card to work - but it was the wrong slot style), I finally found that
the BIOS parameters were set incorrectly - and not just for AGP.
I admit - I had assumed the BIOS was correct, because the machine had been
working without problems for 2 years.
So, currently, since correcting the BIOS, I had not had a problem.
I think you can close this bug.
Ok, closing bug NOTABUG. Thanks for the update.
