Hmm, interesting.  But I don't think I've ever seen a freeze or crash
when running fbdev.

FWIW, I have:
debian-gta02:~# dpkg -l "*xserver*" | grep ii
ii  x11-xserver-utils                      7.5+1

Is the problem perhaps fixed in 2:1.7.6-2, and I happened to be lucky
in skipping 2:1.7.6-1 ?

All of these:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2326996 Jan 12 14:44
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1928400 Mar  3  2009
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1449260 Feb 20 23:04

The last 2 of which are the Debian kernels:
debian-gta02:~# dpkg -l "*openmoko*" | grep ii
ii  linux-image-2.6.28-openmoko-gta02      20090105.git69b2aa26-3

And this SHR-T kernel:

Thanks, I'm doing that now.  Must switch back to glamo to see if it works now...
