Breezy Dell I8500 cpufreq problem ?

I updated my Dell Inspiron 8500 laptop to Breezy recently and now I'm
seeing the occasional 'pause' where the entire system locks up for a
second or so.  These pauses seem to correspond to the following in the
message log:

cpufreq: change failed with new_state 1 and result 0

Is there any way of getting further information short of recompiling
the kernel with cpufreq debugging enabled ? Is anyone else seeing
this ?

PS - cpuinfo reports: "Mobile Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 - M CPU 2.20GHz",
     stepping 7. The BIOS version is apparently A01. I guess I should
	 check for BIOS updates..
