As I understand it, the problem is localized to the R100 series of GPUs
which includes the Radeon 7000/VE I have installed on my box.

I believe this is the bug I am experiencing:

Also, having dug around some, I believe it has to do with the dynamic
clocking patch but I'm not a C coder, don't have access to a serial
console, etc.

There are no messages in the logs -- just a hard freeze of the system.

I'm not using any driver options. I have turned off MTRR, which is also
buggy, in the Screen section. I tried setting SWCursor as suggested in
another bug in the Free Desktop bugzilla but that didn't help.
