Ok, so it also crashes X if I try to change resolutions in ARandR.

What things do you need us to test?

Ok so I installed Lubuntu 12.04 i386 and followed your compile instructions. 

Current setup: Wyse Vx0LE http://www.parkytowers.me.uk/thin/wyse/vx0/WyseV90LE.shtml , lspci shows: [S3 Unichrome Pro] (rev 01), HP LP2065 4:3 monitor, VGA mode (DVI-VGA adapter) 1600x1200 60hz. 

I installed ARandR and tried to rotate the screen. if I go 180' a dialog box comes up and says:
XRandR failed:
XRandR returned error code 1: xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed

If I rotate 90' or 270' the display blanks out and the login box appears after a bit. I think it crashes X. 

dmesg shows:
agpgart-via 0000:00:00:0: AGP V3 bridge
agpgart-via 0000:00:00:0: putting agp V3 device into 8x mode
pci 0000:01:00:0: putting agp V3 device into 8x mode

Let me know if I need to test this at different resolutions or using DVI.
