Not just this weekend. The commit of the new interrupt code prevents
my system from running with HTT and I've seen nothing in the commits
which gives a workaround for me. John knows about the issue and I'm

the new stat strcutures :-(

Great idea, but without dri it works fine.

Don't loading dri does even, but at the moment I'm rebuilding
the ports for another machine ('cause the crashed machine was
also the build workstation) to give Robert the backtrace (if
I can get it).
