That sounds like a good idea too.

I don't want this to fall between the cracks.  Has someone decided what 
should be done and taken steps to make sure it is done?  I didn't file a 
bug report because I don't know what all else this will affect.  I read 
it affects more than just video drivers.  According to someone else, 
there are some packages that benefit/need this as well.

I just don't want someone else to go through what I did.  I even bought 
a new monitor because I thought it was messed up or something.

Thanks.
