I'm having a similar effect here with ati DRI. The consoles get messed
up upon keypress after starting and stopping the xserver (xorg), though
switching between consoles seems to 'clean' the mess a bit. On my box
(PWS600au) this phenomenon appears from 2.4.18 to on Radeon 7500
and 9250 with no noticeable differences.

glxgears looks OK here and reports around 440fps, using and
X.org on Sid.
