Dear Russell Bell,
I had a similar problem when I was using the propriety AMD drivers
several years ago. I never solved it. I just changed drivers. My memory
is hazy on the matter, but your description sounds word for word
identical to my problem.
You might tell us what GPU driver the differing kernels are using.
The output of
1: lsmod
2: Reboot to old kernel
3: lsmod
would do nicely.
