It seems that the ATI line drawing bugs were never sorted, as the
solution that is suggested in that email seems to have done the trick
for me. In the end seems it was a problem with line drawing rather
than bitmaps or images - since I added the "XaaNo" options suggested I
haven't been able to reproduce the problem.

But anyway, I can use X now without it looking like a donkey's rear.

Thanks for the help,
Dave Deans.
