suggests that "older" cards are not well supported.  I think this
chipset qualifies as "older", unfortunately (i'm responsible for several
machines with this chipset myself).

I find that it works better with a backports kernel and the squeeze
xserver-xorg and xserver-xorg-video-intel and libdrm-intel1.

It was very crashy (same drm:i915_hangcheck_elapsed messages) with linux
2.6.32 and the squeeze X stack, but those crashes have diminished since
i upgraded the kernel.  Maybe try rolling back your X stack to squeeze
(or upgrading fully to linux kernel 3.2 now that Ben has put it into
