In looking more carefully at your e-mail, I noticed a work-around, which
I have a few more questions though.
In the "Intel i810 - xserver-xorg-video-intel" case, is that only for
the i810 chipset, or is it for Intell graphics in general? If only the
i810 chipset has the problem, my primary machine should be okay, because
