That was why I remember it - some big bad guru type flamed some newbie for
reporting something similar to this as a bug. A few days later someone else
reported much the same, and a few days after that... I belive there are
archives at xfree86.org - I gave up on the mailing list because it was
rather high volume and most of it went straight over my head!

happy hunting,
