Unforch Lennart, the distro kernels drm is old, and that drives my monitor 
into un-controlled fits of blanking, off for 3-4 seconds, on for 50ms, & back 
off again, anytime some small window touches the right edge of the screen, 
sometimes even the mouse cursor triggers it.  I have been putting up with 
this, even filed bz reports for nearly 2 years, and I'm understandably 
ecstatic that a drm fix that went in with 2.6.34-rc1 has finally fixed that 

Cheers, Gene
