I never got a dump of the panic, and in fact I only got the panic
two or maybe three times (in about two months).  The panic only
happened at the initial startup of XDM, so if I got past that
then I could run okay for long stretches without a problem.

I was also tangled up in other problems with current the same time,
and usually I would just take the easy way out and drop back to my
April 23rd snapshot of -current.

Well, I haven't yet, but then I haven't been running it this way
for all that long.

I would be happy with agp added to the generic kernel, but then I'm
one of the people who would benefit from that...  :-)
