Hm, thanks. Please provide:
- precise steps to reproduce the problem, expected result, actual result,
and how the difference indicates a bug (should be simple enough)
- which kernel versions you have tried and what happened with each
- full "dmesg" output from booting and reproducing the problem on an
- full output from "reportbug --template xserver-xorg-video-radeon", as an
- any other weird symptoms or workarounds
If you get a chance to test 3.4.y from experimental, that would also be
useful. The only packages from outside squeeze that should be needed for
this test are the kernel image itself, linux-base, and initramfs-tools.
If it reproduces the bug, we can pass this upstream. If it doesn't, we
can try to find what change fixed it and apply the same change to squeeze
and wheezy. So either way is a win.
Hope that helps,
