I noticed the problem on Paul's 3400 here as well. I didn't have time
to investigate, I suppose it's a simple endian bug in the X driver for
the CT65536 chipset. You should report that to the XFree or X.org mailing
lists and/or the driver maintainer (I don't know who it is ;), it may help.

If nothing happens, I can try to fix that in X but I really don't have
much time for the upcoming couple of monthes at least.
