[PC-BSD Testing] PCBSD9.1-x86 does not configure X

Hi

I send this question again due to lack of response.

I cannot configure X on my Dell (Intel 915 graphics, details follow),
and after some trickery (taking over configs from RC1) I get it running.
But the system blocks with a black screen when I
- log out and want to log in again
- shut down
The screen gets blurred and the system blocks when I
- press CTL-ALT-F2 ff to access a console window

my laptop:
Dell Latitude D610 with a Intel 915 graphics controller and a
1400x1050 screen size. See the pciconf output below. PCBSD runs on a
plugged-in USB HDD (320 GB WD3200MEW).

Any ideas why the intel X driver is broken? It worked for all the RCs ...

thanks, Harald
