Description Davide Bolcioni 2007-02-21 19:04:44 UTC

This is probably just another symptom of the problems using Xen on i965 
motherboards encountered in bug #229480 and #207432.

This report targets FC6, which is now end-of-life.

Please re-test against Fedora 7 or later, and if the issue persists, open a new bug.
