I have edited the above if any body would like to give it a read and see
if it makes sense.
I carefully read the release notes the above link took me to. <BR>
It looks good to me. <BR>
The only thing that was confusing to me was the "or use RandR to get correct resolution if necessary" part of the workaround. <BR>
In the Synaptic Package Manager, I didn't find a package by that name, but on examining the search, I found "lxrandr", and I found that if I entered lxrandr as a command in a terminal session, it fired-up a GUI interface. I later found that I could access the same GUI from the launcher-menu, by selecting "Preferences", and "Monitor Settings". <BR>
Maybe everybody already knows this, but it took me some experimentation to discover it for myself. I also had to do an Internet search to find out how to "blacklist" a driver. <BR>
Fortunately, with all of my machines depending on the xserver-xorg-video-intel package, the workaround was not necessary. <BR>
