OK  but can be 2 distinct problems ?, if so I am try out isolate Intel
problem .
I got Fedora 13 , updated , and kernel 2.6.35-2.fc14.x86_64 from koji
mesa-7.8.1-8.fc13, xorg-x11-server-1.8.2-3.fc13.x86_64 ,
libdrm-2.4.21-2.fc13.x86_64 and xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.11.0-5.fc13.x86_64
and never freeze , when I had try xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.12 , I could not
say the same.

This happens running Compiz and glxgears and fullscreen Flash video.  If I ssh in at runlevel 3 and run X from one terminal and glxgears twice from another, it works once and then will go into the loop.  Maybe this will help someone who understands server internals better than I do at this point to be able to zero in on what it is.  Once again, Intel 2.12.0, server 1.8.2, Mesa 7.8.2, kernel 2.6.35.
