    Sorry about that, we start to talk about it in private with Dave.
    But, I did not really it since Keenan Pepper told me it was due
    to a bug in the XFree 4.3 driver.
    I am now using Xorg and didn't see any DRM problem since.
    However, I can't confirm that my bug was surely due to the XFree driver
    and not to the kernel driver since Xorg uses i915 instead of i830.
    Keenan, do you have details ?

    I was also talking about a problem in intelfb on this box (i845G).
    Basically, it works great during startup. But from what I remember, it
    always crashes when switching from X to a text console.
    I'll try to debug this one soon.
