FWIW, i also have this issue with my laptop ATI Radeon 9600. i also get
it when switching between X and console (about 1 out of 10 times as you
mentioned). actually i remember a friend of mine having the very problem
with his laptop. but thats about 2-3 years ago(not shure if he got it
fixed). the card in his laptop was also an ATI.

so maybe its a more generic bug, and not specific to the siliconmotion

what does you screen look like when it hangs? i have lots random colors,
moving for some time, then it locks.
