I also confirm the bug, except I use xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-16.fc9.i386

Comment 4 Colin Walters 2008-06-16 18:05:56 UTC also fixed the freeze on a developer's machine here.

Comment 5 Dax Kelson 2008-06-17 23:39:18 UTC

Comment 6 Mike Hanby 2008-06-20 20:10:19 UTC
I have the exact same issue causes a freeze after I login to gnome
(blinking capslock and numlock) on my Dell XPS m1330 notebook (with the iwl4965
wifi card).

Comment 7 John W. Linville 2008-06-23 19:00:46 UTC
Does this problem disappear with -57.fc9 (or later) kernels?
