I thinkyou can rule out the ATI radeon package...I'm running the Xorg
nvidia package...but I also had the issue when running in runlevel 3
(multiuser text mode)...and this is with F10...so if you do back out, I'd
recommend not necessarily updating.
I also don't think it's necessarily a kernel bug, as I've reverted to the
oldest kernel I have installed on the system, and the same thing happens.
Guess I need to go check bugzilla, and file a report if there isn't one.
