Tracking down a prenicious screen lockup, with accompanying growth
of CPU usage from sub 5% to over 99% by XFree-86 (ssh'ed in)
Same with either 'naked' startx, Xfce4 or GNOME 2.8.

All on DragonFlyBSD 1.1 STABLE iso of 27 March '05, 11:30,
and all installed from pkgsrc.
Platform had run XFree-86 on FreeBSD 4.7 thru .10 with
GNOME for many years 'til one of the 60GB RAID drives died.
Finally traced to the driver for the aged NVidia TNT-2.
- choice 18 (NVidia Generic).
Works fine now with Generic VESA.
