Defiantly�NOT a Gnome 3 issue. �Gnome 3 is just the symptom. �Just figured on this DL you'd have greater knowledge on what Gnome 3 is using to narrow the component.

My only thought now is what drivers are in use or feature is being activated that would be different in this computer. �I've logged a detailed bug with the Xorg, but my history with these bugs is it's not going to get looked at. � I'll try the IRC when I have time to actually sit and work on this issue.

OK, this sounds like a hardware issue, not a GNOME3 issue.

Eliminating all the variables is the first step in tech support: if
you have any PCI cards or external USB cards, try removing or
replacing them (just swap with another machine). Try swapping the
memory with another computer, and only leaving one stick plugged in if
you have more than one.
