I have been testing most of the f13 builds as they become available in
koji and haven't noticed any regressions. There was once case where
a couple of updates came in close succession and I updated before trying
out one of the kernels. I am not sure if that was -24 or not.
I am currently running on 4 machines and haven't noticed any
regressions. That's not the same, but gives an indication that some of
the patches aren't causing problems.

I have one machine that has an nv28 card in it and an attached monitor.
I haven't noticed a problem caused by the nouveau driver, but haven't
done much at the console on that machine this week.
