           Summary: GDM hangs, only mouse cursor moves. Official ATI drivers
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gdm
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: isomunkki at jippii.fi

I'm using latest official ATI drivers (8.14.13).
Latest GDM installed from Ubuntu's Synaptic (
Xorg server version: 6.8.2
Gnome version: 2.10.0
Ubuntu: 5.04 Hoary

Automaticly started GDM locks up after 15 min of use (the time might vary). You
can still move your mouse but you can't click on anything or use your keyboard.
You can't even jump to virtual terminals (CTRL+ALT+Fx). Xorg server process
takes 80-99% of CPU resources when GDM locks up.

>From second machine you can log in by using SSH and manually stop GDM service
which recoveres the computer. If you stop GDM on boot with command "sudo
/etc/init.d/gdm stop" and start Xorg server with "startx" your Gnome session
works perfectly.
