By crash I mean that it immediately exits my Xwindows environment and my
display manager (in this case kdm) restarts and presents me with a log
in screen.

It does not lock up.

The screen does briefly (<0.5 seconds?) show some strange stuff (text
that is far too large, and a few lines or boxes, it is hard to discribe,
it happens so fast).

agpgart is loaded, as I believe is required in order to load the radeon
DRM module.

I might mention, that I am also the person that is reporting that XV
will basically do the same thing: cause the Xserver to exit immediately.

The only thing I can point out is that I am using a (possibly?) unusal
setup: a Cube, with a 22'' DFP which runs at 1600x1024 (not a 4:3
ratio).  I don't know if any of that makes any difference, but I thought
that I would mention it.

Thanks!
POB.
