XFBDev problem


I have a problem with installing X on a Powermac 4400/220 with a
1-button mouse connected to /dev/adbmouse. I installed the
xserver-fbdev package, copied the example XF86Config and boiled it
down to the attached version. Now, my problem remains the same: 
After calling startx, I get a white screen, a cross for the mouse
which I can move but I draw a lot more of the crosses... There is some
text from some programs I start in unreadable grey, and when I move
the mouse down, I can move it and I get like 3 more screens and I
cansee the content of other virtual terminals appear (in sort of the
same grey...). 
I changed the resolutions on vt7, using 'openvt -c7 -- fbset -fb
/dev/fb0 "..."' with different values for "...", but the main problem
stays... In some resoultions the X window remains fixed (judging from
the mouse cross: in the correct resolution size, too), but I still
can't see anything... 
I use 'ctwm' as window manager... 

Any ideas, suggestions, etc?
