  we've tracked down the problem:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=495454

it had nothing to do with internet keywords, it was a radeon driver

p.s.  and while i'm here, francois cami suggested i upgrade the bios
on this system as a possible solution.  i checked, and my current bios
version is phoenix 9D.03.  and i can see a newer version here --
9D.05:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile.asp?id=21980&dscr=BIOS%20flash%20Version%209D.05%2005/23/2008

so how *does* one upgrade the bios from fedora conveniently?
curiously, in all my years of working with red hat/fedora, i've never
had to do that.
