Is there any reason why you don't use the specialized xserver
for your card? The package is xserver-s3v (not to be confused
with xserver-s3). I have installed that one for a customer and
he doesn't seem to have those problems (I went to your page to
see the corruption).
Perhaps then it won't be necessary to spend your hard-earned
bucks on a new card?
If I recall correctly, the SVGA server support for S3 is more
or less of alpha quality (I don't know how things improved
since I last read the documentation).
