Comments in this bug offer different workarounds, NONE of which work for me having this video card: 
  00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2a42] (rev 07)

XAA / UXA (in case EXA is the culprit)
 -> UXA freezes the machine on start up with wide vertical black and white stripes
 -> XAA goes through a series of video mode switches but failes to start X

KDE style Plastique instead of Oxygen
 -> seemed to lessen the garbage but not a solution, I still see gargabe on the screen

Downgrade Qt to 4.4?
 -> not possible in jaunty

Given that the bug was known before the release of Jaunty I sencerly don't understand
how Jaunty could get released.

Is there any information people with affected machines could still contribute?
Status for KDE Base says "Fix Released" which however concerns only a fix for single line
text edits.

Status for qt4-x11 says "New Undecided", so what can be done to come to a decission?
Anything we could/should try??
