ok.  i installed the latest fso from [1] and then did an opkg
update/upgrade from these repos [2].  the kernel i end up with is:

kernel - 2.6.24+r10.1+gitrf5b973489beb1a1239dfad53e3ad6e36ff7ee958-r10.1

/proc/version is:

Linux version 2.6.24 (slug at builder) (gcc version 4.1.2) #1 PREEMPT Fri
Oct 17 17:20:36 UTC 2008

what i've noticed is that i do, indeed, get a wsod on screen blanking
when the unit is cold; however, if i let it blank again, the wsod goes
away when i touch the screen again.  i also get a wsod when i suspend
the unit using a quick press of the power button, let the unit cool
off on a window ledge and then resume with another quick press on the
power button.  the interesting thing is that, so far, i've been able
to get rid of the wsod by letting the unit blank again and then
touching the screen again.  so it looks like something that this
version of fso is doing upon unblanking the screen gets rid of the

i will continue testing for the next couple days.  if there is any
other information that would be helpful, please let me know.
