2.6.18-git7 freezes solid on boot

Dell D610 running FC5, works fine with -git5, locks up
in less than a second after selecting the GRUB entry
for -git7, with NumLock on and nothing else working,
SysRq included, except for the power switch (no need
to keep it down for 10 secs though - it powers off
right away).

Since bzdiffing patch-2.6.18-git5 and -git7 shows there
are framebuffer changes, I'm wondering whether anyone
had already stumbled into similar issues.

Video card is an Intel i915GM.

Thanks in advance, ciao,
