It really has 16MB (and always had ;)

Sad... I've now replaced my woody by a sarge and can't reproduce it any
more... and have no backup, only packages CDs :(
If that's very important I could try to extract into sarge and run the X
server I used on woody, switch the graphic cards and make a run to get a
log, but that's a quite heavy manipulation

I'm running a bi-AthlonMP, maybe some AMD/3Dnow specific code is triggered
and bugs things...

!!!WARNING!!! ok to provide this, but it is probably not significant since
I'm now running with another graphics card (a Radeon).

Yes. And not sure but I seem to remember it was already here when it
worked. It's a Diamond "Monster Fusion", maybe the vendor tweaked RAM
timings to improve speed or stability ?
Hope this helps,
