  ok, i can get to that in a bit.  might take a while since this
system is not exactly a screamer but i'm curious -- have you heard no
other reports of people running into this issue?  i'm going to be
embarrassed if it turns out it's something *i've* done but, at this
point, it seems fairly reproducible.

  are there any kernel command-line parms i might try that would be
informative?  anything involving modesetting?
