Hi, I have just installed this kernel:
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.36-maverick/
and this bug still exists on a Dell Vostro 3300 Intel Core i5 .

I have the same problem on a Thinkpad R60 with ATI card, but in that case the "nomodeset" or "radeon.modeset=0" kernel parameter helps!

If I try to set "nomodeset" or "i915.modeset=0" for Intel i5, than X server crashes immediately!

I can see installable packages in the standard repository related to intel core i5 microcode. Do you think that installing those microcode packages could help? I dont think so but who knows?
