I saw this too earlier today on 3.7-rc4+

Nov 11 17:36:02 omega kernel: [drm:i915_hangcheck_hung] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... GPU hung

And it was also gnome-shell which was involved.

Nov 11 17:36:14 omega kernel: gnome-shell[15559]: segfault at 0 ip 00007fa0ac65b695 sp 00007fffddca2cd0 error 4 in[7fa0ac5f1000+3bf000]

Unfortunately I neglected to get the i915_error_state

This is also on a x86_64 Fedora 16 system with a G41

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

When this happened my system was idle and the screen was in power saving
