Still have bad bug with Intel i915 and Ubuntu 9.10

This bug has been around since 9.10 was released, it seems to have
cleared for some people but I still have it.

What happens is that the moment a GUI tries to start (often gdm) the
GUI crashes with a "Call Trace" error.  There's a sort of workaround
if you add "i915.modeset=0" to the boot parameters but it's still by
no means perfect.

Does anyone know if work is still going on to fix this and/or is there
an Intel driver with it fixed?

I'm running the very latest 9.10 kernel.
