Did you patch your 2.6.21-rc5 kernel with patches fron 2.6.22?
The corresponding fix has apparently been committed in Xorg in . So
Xserver 1.2 and above should be ok. You appear to be running Xserver
1.1.1. Is there any chance you try xserver-xorg-core 1.3 currently in
unstable (you'll have to upgrade to libc6 2.5 to do so)? You could also
have tried an earlier xserver-xorg-core 1.2 from snapshot.debian.net but
I don't any 1.2 package built for ia64 there.
