        I thought that I was going crazy or that it was just my
        inability to configure things correctly, but it is kind of
        comforting to see that I'm not the only one seeing problems
        with XFree86 4.0.2 + matrox + kernel 2.2.18 (UP system -- an
        AMD Duron with chipset KT133).

        When X 4.0.2 entered the Debian testing distribution, I
        immediately upgraded (I had used X 4.0.1 before with very good
        results, but that system had an HD crash and I reinstalled
        Debian potato, that comes with X 3.3.6). I got all these
        strange Segfaults and crashes with a vanilla 2.2.18 kernel. I
        went back to X 3.3.6 and everything is running perfectly fine
        since then, but I'd like to use the new features of X 4.

        []s, Roger...
