I know that others saw it on the Tecra M1...  It might have been an 
issue on the M2 and R1 as well.

As for other vendors?  Don't know.

I've heard suggestion that the PCI PnP information BIOS was returning 
was actually giving the wrong memory addresses, etc. and that the fix 
was to explicitly set all of this in the xorg.conf, but haven't been 
able to confirm this.

So the trident drivers aren't maintained, and the Vesa driver 
crashes...  well, seems like I'm up a certain proverbial creek...
