(tried vesafb)  It seems to work!  Both switching to the console and
restoring the display seems to be all right so far.  Hopefully this will
fix it.

By the way, has anyone tried the DRI 3D support on the ATI Mobility M3
(the video chipset the TP A21p has) in X4?  What is involved in setting
this up in debian?
