It's gotten worse; I changed back to 8 bbp and I still have double-vision. I've tried
creating a new XF86Config file from scratch using both xf86config and XF86Setup and
using sane defaults and tried using various Cirrus options (such as "linear" and
"no_accell"); it's really nasty. Oh, BTW, I found out it's a 1MB card instead of 2MB.
