Re: 180.06 report (some improvements)
@zBeeble42: I tracked down the mode validation regression, future 180.xx releases should no longer exhibit this problem. I couldn't reproduce the interrupt storm on this XPS 1730 notebook, though. I was using a variant of FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE, FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE wouldn't install; have you seen the problem with older FreeBSD releases?
@edhunterbg: please see my post #8 to this thread.
