  With these GX110s, do you notice odd xserver crashes (black screen w/ 
debug output, completely locked), usually related to the vesa driver? 
This happens quite a lot (once or twice a week) for the two GX110 
testers we have but has never happened to any other clients. 
Alternatively, can I specify a different xserver than vesa to run for 
these boxes? They're Intel i810 chipsets.
