Nastey one that freezes my whole system [silent kernel panic under working Xorg]. It happens when I use some sort of multimedia on the other workspace and when I switch between workspaces. It happens on an Intel card. I've submitted the bug and I really hope they'll be able to fix it, although for now this bug report is not being resolved.
I don't want to give links, because I don't wish to disclose any information about personal details.
