	Thanks for the clarification. I'm no kernel hacker myself, so
sadly I can't really get a grasp on what happened, so this is good
enough =)

	IIRC someone said earlier on this thread (and I've also seen the
same in other threads about this problem, including the package
maintainers) that the 390.67-2 solved this problem. Since that's the
version that is in sid, that explains why sid doesn't have this issue. 

	In any case, using the workaround worked for me. It caused GNOME
to take a very long time to load, but I'm assuming that's GNOME's fault.

Thanks all!
