it's driver problem as it doesn't happen under windooze and also same prob on 
savage mx and savage 4.
I'Ve mail with Tim ROberts the savage driver author, but he doesn't know yet 
how to solve the prob. Btw. you should upgrade to latest savage driver from 
the authors homepage as it solves crashes with opera (in case you use it).
