You wrote before that v3.2-rc3 didn't work, so in order not to forget, I'm
marking 3.2-rc4 as affected.
Do you know anyone with the same hardware or with an operating system that
uses a different driver, that could help to rule out a hardware problem?
If it is a hardware problem but a common one, it could still be worth working
around (and of course if it is not a hardware problem, upstream might be more
likely to give advice). Otherwise, your best bet might be to keep working
around it locally.
Sorry for the trouble,
