XFree86 UseFBDev & 2.6.0-test7-benh

I just rsync'ed the latest linux-2.5-benh from the theorie.physik.uni-muenchen.de server today, and XFree86 seems to be unable to find the framebuffer device when I boot w/ it. I have /dev/fb/0 and /dev/fb/1 (using devfs; /dev/fb0 & /dev/fb1 symlinks are there). X starts fine using 2.4.x and it starts (but behaves strangely) using 2.6.0-test2 (stock w/ Debian patches). The framebuffer is working because I am seeing the bootlogo on startup and video is working quickly enough to make me think it is *very* unlikely that the OF framebuffer is being used. However, when I launch XFree86 (4.2.1+; Debian sid current), it says that a suitable framebuffer device could not be found. When I change UseFBDev to false, it gives me a different error and still won't start. Any suggestions?
