X Windows on Cats

I have done a little bit more testing on my Cats running X
and whatever the problem is, it appears to be in the NetBSD
kernel. I telnet'ed in and ran 'top' whilst trying to start X
in another session. The telnet session ran for about five
seconds or so after I typed in 'startx' and then the machine
locked up solid. It would not respond to a 'ping' and the only
way out was to hit reset.

Here are some messages from the Xwindows log file
(XFree86.0.log) concerning the driver:

        [0] -1  0       0x00000000 - 0xffffffff (0x0) MX[B]

(--) Chipset virge dx found

(II) S3VIRGE(0): initializing int10
(II) S3VIRGE(0): No legacy BIOS found -- trying PCI
(II) Truncating PCI BIOS Length to 32768

The 'Truncating PCI BIOS' message is the last one in the log.
I guess that there might be more messages in a buffer that were
not written to disk and so were lost when the Kernel froze.

Should I send-pr this?
