I was afraid someone would say that... I'll de-install Gentoo's X and
try it. I know where to get it from... (Sadly gentoo has moved X from
/usr/X11R6 [or 7 I guess :] to  /usr... Makes it a pain to swap back &
forth, it used to be so easy to move symlinks...

I'll give it a go tonight & seehow it goes...I take it it does sound
like something that would be affected by the recent memory updates to
the radeon stuff?
