What is the last known Fedora OS release, and xorg name-version-release that
the card was known to work.

Also, what is the exact name-version-release of the xorg-x11 packages you
are using that the problem is happening with?

This could be a duplicate of bug #168752 perhaps, or could be a neomagic
specific issue.

Setting status to "NEEDINFO_REPORTER", awaiting requested information.

Patience grasshopper. The TP600 is currently waiting Hitachi to send a
replacement hard disk.

BTW - the updates that fixed the trident video seem to have broken its text
restore too, may be a pattern but dont know yet
