I see the same effects on a Thinkpad A20p with an M3 chip (rage
mobility 128).

It's just munging the font, as a consolechars -d will restore it.
OTOH, it munges the font whenever you switch back to X, not just on
startup.  I posted to newbie@xfree86.org about this and haven't heard
anything.  I think it may need to be posted to xpert.

I don't think it's a Debian-specific problem.
