Thanks for the response.  This has already been reported via Novell's
bugzilla.  My main purpose in posting here is to find out whether
similar problems have been seen in environments other than SLES 10.

I think this is something you should post in Novell's bugzilla. I'm not
aware that this issue is already listed there, but I might be mistaken.

SLES10 and RHEL4 use different versions of Xorg. It might very well be a
radeon driver regression. Of course, it *might* be related to some IA64
patch we're applying, but I doubt so.
