Felix Miata, just to note, I did reply to your query yesterday, even 
attaching the Xorg.0.log, but it must have been to big for the server 
because I never got the echo back from the list.

Kernel is 32 bit PAE 3.12.6, cpu is Phenom 9550, 8 gigs of dram.  Install 
is ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS, frozen by an app that will not run on a later 
kernel, so I keep the original rtai patched kernel handy for when I need to 
run that app.

Is there anything specific I can copy/paste from the Xorg.0.log?
