This problem has been especially frustrating because...
1) It cannot be reproduced easily on demand. Sometimes I can go days
or even weeks without it happening.
2) When the deadlock happens, no methods seem able to get any debug
How useful is this kind of bug report? Not very. =(
Has anyone else noticed this lockup with Radeon 7500 happen only when
moving the mouse?
Yes, I started seeing the exact same problem you describe above on my
T30/7500 Radeon. Extremely random, sometimes days between lockups,
sometimes a couple times a day. Always occurs when moving the mouse.
Have to do a power-off to reboot.
