 Bugger. After a recent update, it's broken again. Regardless of the kernel (2.3.27, 2.3.28), and Xorg driver, I now get kernel panics after a variable amount of X server usage. I've had to drop back to VESA. I've not yet managed to triangulate the offending change. Bugger. After a recent update, it's broken again.

 +This looks like a kernel, or possibly hardware problem. The machine in question is a vintage P4. Turning off HyperThreading in the BIOS solves the problem, and I'm back to using the Intel driver. So, wobbly windows again, plus the occasional tendency to corrupt bits of display that aren't being refreshed.
