Nope.  This is X4 we're talking.

I used the SVGA server for some time.  But I kept having sporadic font
corruption under a few apps - Netscape and mutt were the most common - and
switched to the XF86_S3V server.  No more font corruption after that.  But
now I'm using X4, so it's a past issue for me now.  So far, it's working
well.  Not obviously better in any way, but no worse either.
