I don't think it's video-card related.
My home system is runnign CentOS 3. I run it in runmode 3, and then use
tightvnc-server from Dag's site to access the GUI as necessary. After I
yum updated today, the vnc-server won't refresh the whole screen. I
tried uninstalling tightvnc-server and installing vnc-server. Same issue.
My guess is that it's something to do with the X.org system, but I'm not
familiar with the source at all.
I'm glad I checked here that 4.x is borked as well, I was getting ready
to re-load my system with 4.2...
