(forgive me, I'm new at Linux)
-- Dell Latitude D505 with 855GM graphics
-- Loaded Open SuSE 11.4 w/KDE
-- Desktop looks fine but windows flicker badly or disappear when apps are opened or doing alt-tab. Switching to another desktop and back stabilizes things a bit.
-- Colors fine, resolution fine. Window flickers make driver unusable.
-- Reloaded again, used GNOME. Same problem.
-- Checked SuSE release notes, altered many many settings.
-- Tried Intellegacy driver, didn't work at all.
-- Tried VESA driver (640x480), worked OK.
-- Tried building driver myself from xf86-video-intel-2.15.0.
-- Poorly built driver gave some errors, but worked the exact same way.
-- Loaded SuSE 11.2, and graphics work great, no issues.Working module output from Xorg.0.log :
(II) Module intel: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 1.6.5, module version = 2.9.1
Module class: X.Org Video Driver
ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 5.0
Hope this helps!
I've just picked up a Latitude D400, and don't see anything too terrible on upstream drivers, yet. But then again I have yet to install KDE on it.
Can you please attach the Xorg.log for the OpenSuSe packages and for your hand built driver?
Sorry, I lost all the old log files when I loaded Open SuSe 11.2.

Xorg log file when error occurs
This is from the opensuse LIVE DVD 11.4 with KDE. THe error will also appear in GNOME. I have other log files if needed. Sorry for the delay in getting these.
This issue is affecting a hardware component which is not being actively worked on anymore.
Moving the assignee to the dri-devel list as contact, to give this issue a better coverage.
Judging from the problem description, this is the 8xx pageflipping bug. Should be fixed in 3.5:

drm/i915: i8xx interrupt handler
gen2 hardware has some significant differences from the other interrupt
routines that were glossed over and then forgotten about in the
transition to KMS. Such as
- 16bit IIR
- PendingFlip status bit
This patch reintroduces a handler specifically for gen2 for the purpose
of handling pageflips correctly, simplifying code in the process.
v2: Also fixup ring get/put irq to only access 16bit registers (Daniel)
