Are you only interested in Radeon DRI bugs, or any particular
Radeon (and nVidia) bugs?

I ran into what seems to be an FC3 AGP "issue"...   I say AGP issue,
only because that's the one thing the nVidia GeForce 440 MX and the
Radeon 9200SE I tried that locked up my system have in common.

So far, the Radeon 9200SE PCI card I'm trying has not as yet locked
up my desktop, but it did lock up my Viewsonic VX900-2 LCD monitor
when switching from text mode during the boot sequence to graphical
login, just like the other two cards did, so I still don't know what's
causing that.

Frozen power buttons cannot be good for the monitor, so if it's not
an AGP/LCD issue, I'm stumped as to what it may be.

I've also reinstalled the sharutils and metamail rpms (had to use
the RH9 ones, because the src rpms I found barfed spectacularly).
So I'm currently running FC3, with exmh just like I like it, and
so far, so good.
