If you read the thread linked to above, it is claimed that the problem
goes away after recompiling the 686 kernel without SMP support. See the
post by no1wantdthisname.
In any case, on my system I can confirm that I experience the problem
with *both* the stock xorg nv driver *and* the proprietary nvidia
It seems so far that the problem is limited to Pentium M processors but
I could be wrong.
