[ubuntu-x] X/Bugs/Lucidi8xxFreezes call for testing

I'm a sufferer of the crash/freeze mentioned on
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/Lucidi8xxFreezes, and have been happy to test
the solution mentioned on that page.

The chipset: "00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)"
The surrounding hardware: Toshiba Portege M300 laptop

Using a Lucid install that I had not yet attempted any fixes on, the machine
appeared to hang with a blank screen at the point when X attempted to start.

After installing the legacy driver from the raof/aubergine PPA, and adding
i915.modeset=0 to grub the same problem occurred.

While leaving this driver installed, I changed i915.modeset to 1, and the X
server booted without hassle.

dpkg confirms the installed X driver as being:
"xserver-xorg-video-intel             2:2.12.0+legacy20100802-0~raof1~lucid"

Let me know if I can help further.
