That's no good. So let's see.

Very odd. Does it still happen?

Which kernel version is that? You can get the currently running
kernel version by running "cat /proc/version" and looking for the
string in parentheses.
I don't see any relevant fixes upstream (amazingly, since the driver
has had a lot of work done). If you can get a chance to test a 3.1.y
or later kernel from sid, that would be very helpful. (Then we can
get help from upstream.) For graphics, while testing you can use the
vesa driver or nouveau.
Thanks for writing and hope that helps,
