    Subject[i386 arch] MTR messages significant?]
    I've been seeing these for a while now (2.4.4 - <=2.4.2) also coincidental
    with a change to XFree86 X 4.0.3 from "MetroX" in the time frame. Am not sure
    exactly when they started but was wondering if they were significant. It
    seems some app is trying to delete or modify something. On console and in syslog:

    mtrr: no MTRR for fd000000,800000 found
    mtrr: MTRR 1 not used
    mtrr: reg 1 not used

    while /proc/mtrr currently contains:

    reg00: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size= 512MB: write-back, count=1
    reg01: base=0xfd000000 (4048MB), size= 8MB: write-combining, count=1

    Could it be the X server trying to delete a segment when it it starts up or
    shuts down? Is it an error in the X server to try to delete a non-existant
    segment? Does the kernel 'care'? I.e. -- why is it printing out messages --
    are they debug messages that perhaps should be off by default?

    Concurrent with these messages and perhaps unrelated is a new, unwelcome,
    behavior of X dying on display of some Netscape-rendered websites (cf. it
    doesn't die under konqueror).
