Bug#278724: Info received (was Bug#278724: [nv] system hang when using gv, xmms, or lopster on NV5 [Aladdin TNT2] rev 0x20)

I'm glad to inform you that changing the Section "Screen" DefaultDepth
from 24 to 16 the problem seems to have disappeared: at least I could
run my famous test (i.e. gv foo.txt) many times without locking the
system :-)

Although I think you could reasonably close the bug, one question
remains: I had not set that value to 24 and, if I recall well, when I
configured X in old Woody and tried to run it with the wrong value, some
'goblin' would come out from within the X Window System and tell me
that depth 24 was not supported by my video card!
