Thanks Chris, that gives me some sense of optimism. Still I'm running Arch
Linux, all up to date - and still facing the issue. Since you mentioned
modesettigs I assume that this was a kernel related bug (I am not really
into the topic, correct me if I'm all wrong). What release shipped the fix?
Would you mind providing a reference to a related bug report or issue? I
skimmed the release notes of 4.2.6 and 4.2.7 (Arch has 4.2.5) and could not
find a hint on a fix related to KMS.

(Chris, sorry for the resend, I used the wrong sender addess and therefore
the mailing list rejected my last answer)
