Description of problem:
Similar to bug 151252, but I get different colours each time.
After starting X, VGA text mode virtual consoles have pallette(?) problems. Foreground colour, background colour, border colour and whether it flashes, and horizontal offsets, are fairly random. Also, sometimes my monitor does not recognise the mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X
2. Press CTRL+ALT+F1
Actual Results: Foreground colour, background colour, border colour and whether it flashes, are all fairly random.
Expected Results: White text on black background.
The version number of the Xorg driver in use (savage) has not changed since FC3. So I presume this is due to a change in the Xorg code rather than a driver-specific bug.
X itself - although probably the cause of this bug - is unaffected by this bug.

The driver version number remaining the same is not an indication of an
identical driver unfortunately. Driver changes are made all the time to
Xorg drivers without the driver version being updated. While that is
unfortunate from a support standpoing, it happens.
Please report this problem via the X.org bugzilla located at:
