Brian May pointed out to me that one of the X screen savers will also trigger 
this, Brian, which one is it?

I solved the problem on my laptop by using the frame-buffer X server and the 
VESA frame buffer driver.  Brian unfortunately doesn't have this option 
because the vesafb driver doesn't support 1400x1050 (I only have a 1024x768 
display which is well supported by vesafb).

Is there any work on a savagefb driver?

I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
>From field.
