using 3.0.0-17-generic #30~lucid with -duh- lucid and an ancient nVidia. 
  using nVidia  driver - no issues.

not what you asked but an indication, given the normal weeping and 
gnashing of teeth that go with anything nVidia.  I had problems with a 
realtek card using bodhi with a higher kernel, solved by going to mfg 
site and upgrading driver.

radeon I don't know squat about.
