 I think I've successfully tracked this one down: it's a serious X server
 bug, applicable to both BSD and Linux. Specifically, everything I've
 seen is fully explained by ATI Radeon DRI freezing the OS (no keyboard
 lights, no ping response, etc.) under AMD64 SMP. I've had no freezes
 after removing the ``Load "dri"'' line from the X configuration.
