With the 3.12 kernel (Jessie), my G5 PowerMac7,3 crashes and freezes when trying o reboot, but ONLY if I am running X when I attempt to reboot.

Also, the X graphics is crappy compared to the same machine running the 3.2 kernel (Wheezy)

I'm working on getting netconsole setup so I can get a transcript of the crash/hang to submit as a bugreport.  Is this bug (Bug#713943) a good place to send it, if I can get it?
