Hmm, weird, I have very similar effects with a Permedia 2 card
(Diamond FireGL) on my SX164. The server detects 8mb, the symptoms go
away when I force video memory to 4mb or turn off accel. I'm not sure
how much memory the card actually has, so I thought it was just
misdetecting the size, but perhaps it's actually a more generic SX164

Anyway, I suggest forcing video memory to something smaller, perhaps
it helps you, too.
