found 680097 linux/3.5-1~experimental.1

Hi again,

Thanks, and sorry for the slow response.

Since this is reproducible with a recent kernel, we should be able
to get help from upstream.  Please report this at
<http://bugs.freedesktop.org>, product DRI, component DRM/Radeon, and
let us know the bug number so we can track it.

Be sure to mention:

 - steps to reproduce, expected result, actual result, and how the
   difference indicates a bug (should be simple enough here)

 - which kernel and userspace versions you have tested and results
   from each

 - (uncompressed) "dmesg" output and /var/log/Xorg.0.log from an
   affected boot, as attachments

 - what is the nature of the freeze?  Can you toggle capslock?  Does
   ctrl+alt+delete work?  Do the magic sysrq keys work?

 - if you can get one, a kernel log of the freeze would be excellent.
   Sometimes netconsole[1] or a serial console[2] works to get one.

 - a link to http://bugs.debian.org/680097 for the backstory

If we're lucky, the symptoms will ring a bell for someone upstream, or
someone will have an idea of commands or a patch to try to track this
down further.

Thanks again for your patience, and sorry I have no better ideas,
