The lockup is random but has happened a few times in the last week for me.
This time, I hit C-w to close a icedove window when it happened. One thing
that may be useful to know is that I've opened and closed many many windows,
due to some bad calendar feeds that icedove doesn't like.
Can you "reproduce" with 2:18.104.22.1682-1 from experimental?
Yes, I've now seen the same problem with 2.2.299.902-1. Here's the post
startup bit from the failed log file:
(WW) intel(0): PRB0_CTL (0x0001f001) indicates ring buffer enabled
(WW) intel(0): PRB0_HEAD (0x690120d4) and PRB0_TAIL (0x000120e0) indicate ring
buffer not flushed
(WW) intel(0): Existing errors found in hardware state.
I was working in a different app (gnucash) this time, so I don't seem to be
doing anything obvious to allow me to reproduce the lockup.
Also, it would be good to know whether it is EXA related. Add
Option "AccelMethod" "XAA"
do the Device section of your xorg.conf.
I'll try that next.
