Yep, same thing seen here.  I believe it has been mentioned on the
beta-list (I brought this up, although not the out of frequency part but
could be related), and might be due to kernel fb modules being
loaded/unloaded, which Bill Nottingham says due to initscripts/whatever
loading them and shouldn't.

Maybe Bill or DaveJ will chime in about it.

BTW, this is on a fairly less than year old machine, running PIV 2.8Ghz
with ATI Radeon 9200 along with KDS 9 series monitor.
