Bug#566376: linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-amd64: X unconditionally hangs up on bootup

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-5
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

None of the linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-amd64 packages, since they
reached unstable, ever booted successfully on my laptop. X system
darkens the screen and hangs the computer completely (i.e. cannot even
switch to the console via Ctrl-Alt-F1), as soon as the booting process
reaches KDM; Alt-SysRq-B works though.

Does this machine have 4 GB RAM (or more)?  If you add 'mem=3500M' to
the kernel command line, does this avoid the problem?

You are twice correct, Ben. 4 Gb, and mem=3500M fixes the problem.
As this seems a known issue can you please refer me to the original problem (and maybe close this as duplicate, if no other bug-related data is needed from me)?
