F7 Intel X3100 fatal crash (Thinkpad T61 using Google Earth)


On a Thinkpad T61, with Intel X3100 (965GM) graphics, I can fully
reproduce a fatal graphics problem when running Google Earth (I
tried both a 4.0 and a 4.2 version of GE). 

When GE starts zooming in, the screen colormap gets corrupted and then
the screen becomes black, sometimes showing the "busy circle".  The
console is the useless until the next reboot, even remotely doing
"telinit 3" and "telinit 5" does not bring the screen back, the only
solution is to reboot.

I get the following kernel message:

[drm:i915_wait_irq] *ERROR* i915_wait_irq: EBUSY -- rec: 180192 emitted: 180602

This is with Fedora 7 with all updates up to today (
kernel, the previous kernel had the same problem).

Any ideas?  Should I file a bug to xorg-x11-drv-i810, to which
"intel_drv" belongs (note that "i810_drv" did not work at all)?

Any further suggestions?
