FONT PROBLEMS! XF4-phase1 debs, v8 -> v11, mga, 16 bpp
I just returned from vacation, and so I thought that I would upgrade my v8
debs to v11. What I discovered, however, is that the v11 debs are unusable
for me because font drawing is all screwed up in 15-bpp and 16-bpp depths
for the mga driver.
8-bpp and 24-bpp depths work fine, but I need 16 bpp in order to get
hardware acceleration for OpenGL. Downgrading to v8 solved the problem for
the time being.
The problem that I observe in 16-bpp mode with the v11 debs is that most
characters appear grayed out, and, for example, some ghost characters
appear frozen in place while I scroll using '/usr/bin/less' in an xterm
