I am pretty sure that each time I moved from one version of xorg to
another (snapshot.debian.net/archive/2007/03/08/debian/ <--> testing
<--> unstable) *all* the xorg modules changed, including the modules. As
I recall, apt-get was unwilling to easily let me do otherwise. So I do
not think the combination of unstable xserver-xorg-core 1.3 and stable
siliconmotion 1.4.1 was ever tested.
