Well, I've had this X session on my Ultra5 up for several days, doing
mozilla, gnucash, koffice, etc...It's something specific to your setup.
Can you send your modeline? You can get a decent modeline for default by
using "fbset -x" and copying the output to XF86Config, and referencing
it. That way your X modeline matches your terminal modeline.
