Greetings folks;

Its back this morning.  I cannot touch the right edge of the screen with an 
apps window without blanking the screen, but if I pull the window back left 
before I release the mouse button I grabbed it with, it will unblank in 
around a long second.

Using the F10 radeon driver now, with kernel 2.6.33-rc5's drm.  Uptime 
approaching 2 days.

This has been a problem for me, with either driver, for well over a year now, 
is there no hope for a fix?


Cheers, Gene
