Hi Rob,

Thanks for the bug report.

I see the X server crashing in pixman in the log file you uploaded.

This looks like the kind of thing that Chris would be good at looking at,
so I'm assigning the bug to him.

Reading through the RedHat bug, they state that this (and the bug does indeed look similar) is fixed by an update to the xserver - though they don't actually state which commit is the correct fix, grr.

Rob, can you confirm whether using an external monitor is still an issue with i915 and xorg-server-1.7.2?
Comment 4 Gordon Jin 2010-04-12 01:05:46 UTC
Chris, I guess we can close this bug if not getting response.
Comment 5 Chris Wilson 2010-05-10 12:26:42 UTC
Closing, presumed fixed by updated xserver.
