I wonder if this bug must be a kind of duplications...
When I change a resolution by pressing CTRL+ALT+(+/-) or command xrandr,
My monitor changes it's resolution,but my PC offten seems to be freeze.
Any keys don't be accepted(even numlock, CTRL+ALT+BS).
But other processes seems good.For example,sshd and httpd are available.
Playing tuxracer fullscreen mode twice or xmame.SDL --fullscreen cause this
If I delete Option "dri",this problem dosen't occur.
It helped nothing to disable any other screen section options.
Zapping TV viewer goes fine.

My Radeon 7000 locks up with monitor bad refresh when changing resolutions.
sometimes I can reboot otherwise have to reset.
According to some advices on webs,I've changed my power suply from 250W to
500W.But my machine still locks when I change monitor resolution.
I tested AGP DRIVING VALUE E7,A8,BA,CA and DA.
I have no idea about PCI LATENCY CLK.I set it to 255.
I have changed my mother board into Asus A7V400-MX,
but the probrem still occurs.the temeparture of CPU is 67.0c/152.6F.
Compare bug #1991.
The problem is not solved yet.My machine is as used to.
I also tried xorg-x11-6.8.2-52.src.rpm. (cannot see TV by this package.)
I am afraid that AIW8500 has a problem itself.
Whats the status of this bug using a current version of xorg?
Could you please post a backtrace of the lockup?
Now,I am using Fedora Core 5.
All of my packages are up-to-date.
Lockup(maybe dri problem) still occurs by the same way.
The lockup problem do not always occurs,but sometimes.
changing resolution once,twice or other times.
So I guess this is complicated one.
I have tried a development package xorg-x11-drv-ati-184.108.40.206-4.cvs20060404 just now.
Something has changed.
Lockup still occurs,BUT
1.My monitor becomes black.
2.Sometime my keybord is available and sometime unavailable.
3.Additionally when my keyboard is available and I try to change resolution one
more ,all the process seems to lock up.
I take it that you are experiencing the same behaviour with another monitor.
Also try to build the custom non-kernel drm modules from dri.freedesktop.org
