    That happens to me at least once a day or more, depending on how
    much I use X. I have a Cirrus 5446 PCI with 2M, and am running
    2.0.35. Any attempts at contacting the X people, redhat, or
    anyone else on any mailing lists have turned up no replies to a
    fix, but have turned up other users with the same problems with
    different hardware. Houston, I think we have a problem.
