Actually, I haven't tried my S3ViRGE on v4.1.0 too much.  In 8bpp, it
worked great.  Prior versions of X seem to have problems with my
particular S3V when I increase the colour depth (screen "overlaps" itself
three times over...it looks like each plane is being offset to the right
and drawn on top of the other).
