	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).

	Try it and let us know.
