We have not seen this issue internally, although I haven't done tests with this
particular video card.  Voodoo 3 are known to have problems with testing the X
configuration, but it doesn't seem like that's the issue here.  

Brock, in your testing, have you tested any Voodoo3 cards lately?  If so, have
you run into this issue?

Cannot reproduce on my Voodoo3 here.  Resolving as worksforme.
