Package: zgv
Version: 5.6-1.2

I have a laptop. It is a rebranded Mitac mic5033 400Mhz K6-2, 160MB Ram
machine with a trident graphic chip. lspci ouput: 00:02.0 VGA compatible
controller: Trident Microsystems TGUI 9660/938x/968x (rev d3)
The display is 800x600. 

I recently did am apt-get dist-upgrade from stable to testing. Now I run
Sarge with a 2.4.22 custom (make-kpkg) made kernel.

When I type in zgv my I see two yellow lines a couple pixel thick on my lcd.
One in the middle going from left to right and on at the top going from left
to right. I was unable to exit the program by using ctrl-c, change console
or login via ssh from another machine. The computer was completely frozen. It
didn't even return a ping any more.

After a cold start the lines were still visible on the screen. After I shut
down the machine for 20 minutes they faded and are now not visible any more.

To check what i had just witnessed I rebooted and did a dpkg -P zgv and
after that a clean apt-get install zgv. Then I logged into a normal console and
had no other programs running. I got the exact same result. 

I was running reiserfs on my main partition and have serious problem
repairing it at the moment. The bug seemed to have a really bad karma. Therefore I
do not feel like testing this bug out any more. Sorry.
