Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This similar to a bug from 1997 where the H/V-sync was part of the problem where
-hsync and -vsync needed to be added to the xconfig in appearance but probably
not the same cause.
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
