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


How reproducible:

Actual Results:  The CPU will hit 99.9%, and hard lockups also.

Expected Results:  Box is not rendered useless when screensaver kicks in.

Additional info:

SMP Athlon, 2 x 1.6ghz,1 gig memory, Tyan 2462, ATI Radeon 7500,agp fast writes
enabled. With original Xfree that came with redhat 8.0 box would lock up after a
day or so every time. With 4.2.1-9 it last 2-3 days more sometimes. The
condition it is is right now having a hard time killing X, init3, kill did not
help. Sent kill -9, now X seems not to be running but screensaver is stuck on
the desktop. 

Have Xfree log and configs, will email upon request.

XFree86 Version 4.2.1 (Custom Build: 4.2.1-9) / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 3 September 2002
        If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
        newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
        reporting problems.  (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-03 04:30:32 EST
You're using a custom built XFree86 release, and not an official Red Hat
XFree86 release.  This is unsupported.  If you can reproduce this on
an official Red Hat XFree86 release, then please reopen the bug report,
and attach your config file and complete X server log using the link
below.
