Anyone using a Dell XPS 13 m1340? Kernel problems.

I didn't want to put this under Fedora, even though that's my distro of choice. I want to see if anyone else has this laptop and is using it with any other distro that has a 2.6.34 or 2.6.35 kernel.
The last Fedora kernel to boot properly on this laptop is the 2.6.33 kernel. Since this laptop has dual Nvidia cards and is using nouveau, I'm having the feeling that the inclusion if Nvidia SLI support in the kernel starting with the 2.6.34 kernel might have something to do with it.

Graphics: Card-1 nVidia G98 [GeForce 9200M GS] Card-2 nVidia C79 [GeForce 9400M G] Fedora X.org 1.9.1 Res: 1280x800@59.9hz
GLX Renderer Gallium 0.4 on NVAC GLX Version 2.1 Mesa 7.9 Direct Rendering Yes

I'm putting together a bugzilla entry, and I'm hoping to get some feedback from others who might have this particular laptop. I've got to say, I'm not having much luck so far.

Keeping my fingers crossed, Anyone?
