User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

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):

How reproducible:

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[1352]: Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly
May 26 01:00:34 grommet kdm[1352]: Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly

May 26 21:11:18 grommet kdm[1352]: Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly
May 26 21:18:02 grommet kdm[1352]: Server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly

Expected Results:  nothing

Additional info:

XFree86.org know of problems in this driver,

Just want to let you know that someone is using it and is
seeing the problem.

Dear mharris,

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.

Thanks anyway,
