It seems that compiling a kernel with -O2 still does not do the right
thing on the i386. I notice this problem mostly on the i486 I have, but
even the pentathing I also run has screen problems from time to time.
My main concern is that if this is a compiler problem, what else may
be broken, in the kernel or in userland, because of it?
Varies ; the 486 always has the problem, the pentathing, once in a while,
especially when leaving X or the machine is up for a long time.
Compiling a kernel with -O fixes it, or at least appears to hide it.
