Re: E250, Raptor gfx, kernel 2.6: questions...

I think you will find my bug at the following URL to be relevant to
your situation. Please have a look at my strace64 output and let me
know what you think. Also, please add any potentially relevant comments
to the docket. Hopefully if multiple users report this, the X Strike
Force will finally take action against it. Thanks in advance for your
assistance with this.
