--- Comment #12 from Mark Gray <graymark@xxxxxxx> ---
Booted the clean install, but was unable to get it to fail this time ... so I
re-enabled compositting on my old "zypper dup"'ed install, rebooted and ... I
still have not got it to fail ... but it will eventually (trust me).

It seems to happen most often after an "zypper up" which requires a new initrd
which led me to speculate that it might be caused by an error installing the
micro code updates the next time the kernel is booted. This hunch was
reinforced by the fact that using yast to change kernels (which seems to
require a new initrd build?) would magically fix the problem.

Anyway, feel free to close this until I am able to reproduce it reliably, and I
will reopen it when I get it to fail (_and_ know how I did so).
