X server starts up OK. Almost everything runs just fine. I run xmgrace (grace,
a plotting package, uses the lesstif widget set). Select Plot->Axis properties,
select the Axis label & bar tab, and the SERVER crashes (segfault), but only if
I have Option "DPMS" in the monitor section. If I comment that option out,
there is no problem. Adding Option "NoHAL" "True" to the Device section doesn't

Created attachment 408 [details]
/var/log/Xorg.0.log for the crash. Used Option "NoHAL" "True" in this case.
Almost forgot: added -DHAVE_FT_BITMAP_SIZE_Y_PPEM=1 to DEFINES in

It appears to be specific to the mga driver: I have another machine with the
same configuration but with a radeon driver, and there is no problem.
starting with the 126.96.36.199 snapshot, on linux systems, the X server can print
its own backtrace when it crashes. please confirm that these bugs are still
valid with 188.8.131.52 or later, and if they are please attach a the server log
from the crash.
a quick look over the mga driver doesn't show anything obviously wrong with the
DPMS support. scott, please reopen this when you have a log with a backtrace in it.
Marking broken (status null/blank) bugs in xorg with no activity in a long time as fixed. Please reopen if you think it's necessary, but first do a search if a similar bug report is already filed and in a NEW/ASSIGNED state. These bugs do not currently show in most search results as they do not have any status.
