outdated, please test against newer in unstable.

> The problem usually occurs after some time and one or two software suspends (pm-suspend --auto-quirks). Shortly before it the screen will usually jump horizontally. The jumping will not stop if not changing virtual screens in X. Then, after some time it will get really bad. Then the screen suddenly blanks (backlight will stay on). It only effects the screen. Everything else will still work, confirmed by remote login via ssh.
and provide dmesg of 2.6.32-10, thanks.
