Description of problem:
Using the latest updates of Xorg results in totally f*cked up graphics after reboot, on my HP deskpro d530 powered by an internal i865G gfx card. I was running FC3, then updated, and I was unable to see anything. So I reinstalled with FC4, clean install, no problem, until I did an update of all packages, same problem after reboot.
Even the startup screen after grub bootloader is messed up!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fresh FC3 or FC4
2. yum update
Actual Results: Graphics are totally messed up, it looks like garbage(Kinda like when a C=64 decrunshed, just over the entire screen).
Expected Results: Startup picture would show and eventually login screen.
Standard install, personal desktop.

Brig: It appears you were hit by the pci-config regression, which is solved
in the current update. Thanks for the feedback.
Original reporter: Please update the bug report to indicate wether the
latest update still has this problem for you or not. If the current update
still has the problem, please indicate the exact rpm package version-release
of xorg (rpm -qa |grep xorg-x11 |sort), and attach your X server log file
and config file.
