yeah it is nice isnt it :), probably the reason I only lasted about one day
on X Free 3.3.6 on my pismo bnefore upgrading to 4.0.*

I had this problem early on, I had seen similar sort of ditortion in the
past with X when the frequency I was running a monitor at was too hight, so
I set the frequency horizontal and vertical in the X config to some lower
range and now my X is fine with no distorition in all apps (well except some
weirdness in the scroll bar on the left in emacs where there is text, but it
is not a problem or anything as it is not stopping it from being readable
like it had been previously.)
