ThyMythos: I don't think that post proves "it is definitely a X server
problem" - it's a strong suspicion among the people investigating this,
but as yet there is no solid evidence of what is causing it and allowing
it to happen.
Removing the e1000e module will mean that the EEPROM is not mapped into
memory, which would make it really quite hard to break (and indeed, the
laptop which broke within 24 hours of running Intrepid a month ago, has
been back with me for over a week now and running without e1000e.ko has
been absolutely fine).
