Why assume it's a different bug? I would almost wonder if it might affect
all Sandy Bridge GPUs. In any case, I no longer have the original
motherboard (it was recalled, as I said in the first post), nor even the
revision of it (it had other issues that weren't being fixed). I *assume* I
will have the same problem with my new motherboard (Intel DQ67SW), but I
haven't verified that yet. I'll be sure to try a netconsole when I have to
reboot next and get a chance to try the most recent 2.6.38 and .39 kernels,
but at the moment it seems reasonable to address the problem bisected in the
bug, even if it turns out to be different.
