Thanks for that. I think (everything crossed) thta I have now managed to
resolve it. "useevents" "true" and a couple of other driver config tricks
did not fix the problem, but since I started using Myth I have had a custom
PAL modline, which is now crippling Xorg for some reason. Strange as I have
not changed anything  for months, software or hardware wise, and have used
that modeline for years.

Just happy that it's fixed.

On a OT aside, we have just taken delivery at work of 55 Windows servers
which are to replace 1 small IBM P5 running AIX. Same software from same
supplier, just the windows version on top of Windows instead of Unix as we
have very little professional experience of Unix, and the decision has been
taken to base everything on Windows where possible
