While looking on Google Earth at some very specific Island, the system lock ups, however the mouse still moves... I can access it from the network, I get a backtrace of the locked task which tells i915 is the culpit.
Killing X freezes the system completely, and even funnier, I get stuck on a blank console (I guess the vt where X started) with only an underscore _not_ flashing in the corner and a cursor, yes, my X cursor frozen where it was when X is killed. At this point, even SysRq+B does not work.
For Google Earth, it does this even with Atmosphere, Water and all the effects turned off, and I can repeat the lock up by looking at Tristan da Cunha, an island near south africa in the middle of the ocean. I don't know if it's specific to this island of because I'm in the middle of the sea, but I can repeat it.
What's the driver version? Please provide the detailed info including Xorg.0.log referring to http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/how_to_report_bug.html
Sorry did this in a hurry before going to sleep.
Xorg-server: 220.127.116.111 (second release from Gentoo)
Machine is a laptop, HP 6530b it happened on the LVDS panel.
Xorg.log will follow, I'll reproduce the bug in a moment and reboot.

While crashed, however I don't think there is more information about the crash.
I just want to add that I can effectively repeat the problem by looking at the exact same spot, angle, panning and zoom. Here are picture I took of the frozen X with Google Earth showing the spot plus another picture of the killed X and cursor on the frozen computer.
The place name for Google Earth to find it is:
Tristan da Cunha, St Helena
Could you provide gpu dump according to http://intellinuxgraphics.org/intel-gpu-dump.html?

Taken at the same place, I tried intel_gpu_top, that's nice too, shows ring idle: 100% ring space: 0%
Pressing standby enters the computer standby and resuming crashes X, then restarting X I only see a cursor even if all my program are started.
I just want to confirm that I tried exactly 2 hours ago, the bug still exists on 2.6.30, same thing same place.
The dump doesn't show anything in particular. What version of Mesa are you using? Does it still occur on Mesa master?
I tried with Mesa master on my system, and zooming to that location worked, as well as moving the camera around that location and re-zooming to it.
please reopen if you can reproduce this on mesa master
