Amaya WX 9.1 crashed ATI graphics driver.

Dell Inspiron 600m,  WinXP, ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 graphics
ati2dvag.dll version 6.13.10.6279

Amaya would display its home page successfully and the local helpfiles
but when I followed the link to http://www.w3.org the display froze entirely
and eventually WinXP reported that the ati2dvag display driver had
crashed (WinXP reverted to 640x480 fallback mode) and required a reboot.

This was repeatable, though sometimes the display would simply
freeze with no driver crash report from WinXP, requiring a hard reboot.

Updating the graphics driver from the Dell Web site to
ati2dvag.dll 6.14.10.6476
appears to have cured this problem.
