1) Are there known issues with the tga2 driver/cards and xorg 7.1 ?

Well, yes; there's no TGA driver module! It was never ported to the
modularized driver scheme in Xorg 7.x.

Well, that explains the issues with the DEC video card.

2) Is the blocky line issue on the consoles terminals a configuration
issue or something more serious?  Where would I look in the
configuration files to fix that up?

It's probably a matter of the save/restore of state by the Cirrus
driver is not working correctly on Alpha.

You've a MUCH better chance for satisfaction with ATI or Matrox
or Permedia based cards; those are known to work fine.

Ahh, but the above was seen with an ATI Radeon 7000 card. I pulled out the DEC video card and inserted the Radeon 7000. Then I saw the problems with the console terminals. Admittedly I didn't think at the time to check thoroughly the X11 log file to check for any reported issues, but I did change the video driver spec in the /etc/ X11/xorg.conf file to radeon.
