Bug#117913: xserver-xfree86: [mga] screen freezes when xdm-managed session exits on MGA G550 AGP
I'm not convinced Felix's bug is the same as mine -- my problems were
with gdm rather than xdm (which has always cooperated quite nicely,
thank you ;-)), and have been better since 4.2.0. (I have seen some
other gdm weirdness on this machine in later tests, but no server
crashes or hangs.)
On a whim, I tried the option you suggested to see if it did anything
about the current gdm lossage (not noticing when I logged out);
unsurprisingly, it had no effect.
