Well, considering that I reported the problem on 2005-03-16 for FC4 Test1
already and many other users with different chipsets reported the same and
similar issues later, I'm quite disappointed that so far there have not
been any resources available to look into it.

Since xorg-x11 6.8.2 is also an update for FC3 and doesn't suffer from the
same symptoms, it smells quite like GCC 4.0.0 could be the culprit -- in
ASM code maybe? We have not even been provided with X packages built
without -O2 just for testing.

The only thing which doesn't make me feel fed up with FC4 with regard to
this is the libvgahw.a work-around.  No virtual consoles for several
graphics chipsets is a blocker, IMHO.
