Yeah, it works fine.  I didn't put it into unstable since Keith is still
working on it.

Actually, even though it appeared to have fixed Xv for myself when I
first tested it,  I notice today it's now failing again - the blue video
windows have come back.  But others have reported it fixed the problem
for them.  I'm using 855GM.

I'm not aware that it will make things worse, and it might help you, so
give it a try.
