  point taken.  that was just some residual frustration left over from
weeks of tolerating that problem, to see it *finally* (or so i
thought) go away, then to suddenly come back right when i'm trying to
put together a LUG talk on building a new kernel.  grrrrrr.

  so the obvious question is, is anyone else seeing this problem back
again?  i note one person who claims that things still seem to work.
anyone else?  or could it really just be something weird i've done?


p.s.  i posted to the dri-devel list, let's see what i hear back.
