 I have an Asus ''P5E3'' motherboard with an ''XFX NVidia GeForce 8500''
 graphics card in a PCI-E x16 slot and a very old Matrox card in a PCI slot
 (I'm not sure of the product number, I'll get it as soon as I can).

 I didn't plan to use the Matrox card under Haiku as I couldn't find any
 support for it, unsurprisingly given its age and peculiarity. Anyway, when
 I boot into Alpha 3, the system hangs on the rocket icon unless I use fail
 safe video mode. If I do this, the system often crashes eventually,
 normally when I change workspace. There have been times when the screen
 has gone black, and whilst the mouse responds, it only turns the black to
 white in blocks where it moves. I haven't been able to reproduce this yet
 after learning how to get a syslog. The most frequent crash whilst the
 system is up is when the app server drops into gdb, and I'm afraid I
 haven't a clue how to debug it from there so I can't give you any more
 information than another syslog.

 I should mention that without the Matrox card, the problem goes away, but
 I did want to use it in Windows for some video editing/capturing.
