Bug#575965: xserver-xorg-video-intel: Random complete freezes of whole system

severity 575965 important

> Justification: renders package unusable

X freezes are usually just important, adjusting.

Urgh that's sad.

What about downgrading to see whether that happened back then already?
It might be nice to see whether that's “just” a regression from a
known-working version.

Could you also give the 2.6.32-4-$arch kernel from sid a try? It might
have some DRM-related fixes (backported from 2.6.33 and maybe later),
which may help.
