Bug#520373: xorg: Xorg locks up when browsing some websites

Package: xorg
Version: 1:7.3+18
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

>From time to time, the screen becomes black and start to flicker.
The only way to get out is to press the shut down button. Then
i get the usual console, and the problem disappear for the time
it takes for the system to shut down. 

Today I found a website that can reproduce the problem quite reliably.
I just read something between 5 or 15 pages on this site with iceweasel 
and the screen locks up.

I tried different kernels to see if it was a kernel problem but there is
no difference.

I have a thinkpad x60s with no peripheral plugged in.
