I got the same behavoir a few days ago BEFORE rebuilding the system, so
i don't think it is due to the statfs change.
The driver stopped working around the time the XFree86 ports were
changed, I think that these are more likely the cause.

The odd thing is that this seems to be system dependent, on my P4 system
at home the driver still works fine, on my Athlon system at work I have
the same issues you describe here...

I haven't done anything to debug or fix this because I need the failing
system to work with rather then to play around with ;) But if anyone
wants to look into that I'll provide every information needed.
