    I believe at this point, its moot. I captured quite a few instances of that
    error message while rebooting the last time, all of which occurred long
    before I logged in and did a startx (I boot to runlevel 3 here), so the
    kernel was NOT tainted at that point. That dmesg has been posted and some
    questions asked.

    As this has gone on for a while, it seems to me that with 14,800 google hits
    on this problem, Linus should call a halt until this is found and fixed. But
    I'm not Linus. I'm also locking up for 30 at a time, & probably ready for
    reboot #7 today.
