That was a mailing list question, I'll file a bug report if someone 
suggests the correct component.
I don't see the point of writing lots of information until requested - 
it may or may not be relevant.

Kernel is 1688, with the binary nvidia driver. Software is fedora 
rawhide + rawhide extras + livna + selinux repository, All non-obsolete 
or broken packages installed as of 2-3 days ago. The hardware is an 
Athlon 1600+, nvidia 5700 (256MB), 512MB SDRAM. This is a rather old 
computer, but that doesn't explain the behavior I am seeing.
