Well, you could check the sources of the driver to see if you can find
out what's going on or try to run the X server in the debugger to get
more information.  Or you wait until the bug is fixed or someone who
knows more has an idea --- or you can use the NVIDIA card instead of the
intel one or you don't do anything that triggers the freeze.
