> Are you sure it was matroxfb and not DRI what changed?

Actually, no. I've been stuck at 2.5.46 for *ages* due to a never ending 
succession of driver issues (still not all solved by the way). 2.5.72 was 
the next kernel I could actually try to use. A lot of change takes place
over that many kernel revisions.

But "never mind" (although... :-), because...

YES! No more ghost X image, no more white rectangles, no more sudden

do consider pushing (some of) this to Linus for inclusion into the 
2.6.0.test series!
