I get something very similar in the log when I call

	xrandr -s (something)

where (something) > 2 with the latest git checkout (of today, 2007-04-23)
of server + inteldriver.

After calling 

	xrandr -s 3

the display turns dark and stays that way even after

	xrandr -s 0 

is called to revert the changes. Even after a restart of the server, the
problem persists; I have to reboot the machine to get back to a working X.

==== this appears at restart of xrandr-broken X without rebooting ======
(WW) intel(0): ESR is 0x00000001
(WW) intel(0): Existing errors found in hardware state.

This does not happen under other circumstances here, but as far as I know,
there are no applications in use here (yet) which uses RandR funbctionality,
so I am not surprised about that.
