Bug#601715: squeeze->squeeze: kernel errors after upgrade, X system left in a non-working state


For this Acer/ati bug, I had upgraded to 2.6.32-23 on 4th Oct., and
the system was running perferctly with that version. Yesteday I
upgraded to 2.6.32-26, and it was only then the problems appeared.

Now I tried using a sligthly older version (package
linux-image-2.6.32-3-686, 2.6.32-9) which I still had installed on the
system, and even that did not work any more. Also this version did
work well earlier.

Then I installed the package linux-image-2.6.30-2-686,
2.6.30-8squeeze1 which functions well, so now I have reverted my
system to run on that version.

To me it seems that something like this exists:

|                  | recently-updated-Xorg | not-so-recent-Xorg |
| 2.6.30-8squeeze1 | works                 | works              |
|         2.6.32-9 | does not work         | works              |
|        2.6.32-23 | does not work         | works              |
|        2.6.32-26 | does not work         | unknown            |

Whatever happens, it is not only in the kernel, and not only in the
Xorg video drivers, but a combination of some recent changes in both.

Whatever info on the Acer/ATI system you want, I'll try to provide.
