The system appears to be ok and boots happily to a console but if you
load any graphical UI, the screen will blank and the process stops
working (tested with opie and and xserver+GPE). You can kill -9 the
process but you can't regain the console without a suspend/resume cycle
which performs enough of a reset to get it back. chvt and the console
switching keys don't respond.

I tried the patch mentioned in but it
makes no difference.
