Sorry, I think I messed things up with that link to the DRI bugzilla. There are two different issues: one, a change in kernel's drm implementation that makes X hang when dri is enabled, which is what this bug is about. I can confirm this. Now I run kernel 188.8.131.52 from kernel.org, without the startup hang.
Where I messed things up is with that link: the other X hangs that I experience are only when running some OpenGL programs, and it takes from a few seconds to some hours. The end effect is the same, I have to reset the machine. Should I enter a separate bug report for that?
