Appeared ? hah... that's strange. X is known to fuck up the chip when
quit, but I wouldn't have expected any change due to the new version of
radeonfb. From what you describe, it looks like an offset register is
changed by X, or the surface control.

My patch did not change any of radeonfb accel code though...

I'll catch up with you on IRC ...
