I installed the program cheese to run my built in web cam. It locked up my laptop.Trouble shooting with cheese developers (bug 550001) we found with running no xv, cheese worked and my laptop did not lock up. I have an Intel Cantiga integrated graphics controller ( rev7). I am running Ubuntu 8.04 kernel 220.127.116.11 generic, xorg version unknown (13 June 2008). i have also noticed that I lose the screen at times when I change users. Also the desktop shrinks in width occasionally. I have also had my computer lock up on boot up on occasion.
Please provide more detailed info, according to http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/how_to_report_bug.html, especially the detailed reproducing step (including where to get cheese).

This needs to be retested against current drm-intel-next kernel and master xf86-video-intel (stolen memory counting issues result in a variety of fun effects).

Chuck, does this bug still exist?

Chuck, have you tried with new releases as Eric noted? There's a critical bug in older drivers for GM45. You must try 2.6.28-rc kernel with 2.4.3 xf86-video-intel driver or newer.
