I believe this is still an ongoing issue. I have full dist-upgrade from 
2 days ago. here are what should be relevant pkgs:

i made change as requested in previous post and attempted to build, but 
build failed, errors look like this:

perhaps i'm just missing a needed build/src module, lemme know if you 
want me to get some source in there i'm missing. but i figure it could 
just be an unavoidable invalid configuration with that modification.

anywho, i'll try to keep up on this report for a few days, i have it in 
a good position to build, and the error is identical to originally 
reported. frozen machine, black screen, crashed x with error about 
corrupted page table.
