Bug#491205: Consider closed
Well, I walked away from Debian for a few months because of this bug, as
I just couldn't stand losing work randomly because of it. However, in
the last four weeks of using Debian Lenny fully up-to-date I've been
unable to replicate the lock-up. It simply doesn't crash or lock-up for
any reason any more, even though I'm running an identical setup as when
I suffered all the lockups.
Since I'm the original bug reporter, I thought I'd weigh in and say that
you can consider the bug closed as far as I'm concerened. Some
combination of updates must have resolved it. I have waited several
weeks to write this because I wanted to be absolutely sure the problem
wouldn't re-occur. And so far, it hasn't.
