Ahh, I'm not seeing that pattern here at startx time either. Running a 
mostly FC2 system now including your x.org version.  Using 
kde3.3-beta2 also.  Where would I remove the -nobr or whatever that 
would enable this.  My monitor is, after 10 years, beginning to show 
a wee bit of ageing.  NEC 5FG, pretty good in its day...
