I don't know if anyone has seen this problem but I wouldn't mind an idea on how
to fix it...

I have a P90 with a Cirrus Logic 5434 (Alpine Series) 2 Meg video card... every
thing works fine until I end my xdm session (log out all open xterms and try to
return to the username / password box) and then the card spasms and displays
about a quarter of a screen of crud. The machine then locks up for a while but
eventually something works out that there is a problem and xdm gets completely
restarted...

Another slighty strange thing I have noticed is that the very top left most
few bytes of the screen are always black (I would guess about 8 pixels), if I
move a window over the area the pixels remain black... weird huh ?

Any suggestions appreciated...
