Noise with S3 Savage in XFree86-4.0.3-5

There are so many noises on S3 Savage in XFree86-4.0.3-5. when
I move cursor. Copy /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o
from XFree86-4.0.3-1 fixes the problem.
BTW, it is on a Toshiba Portege 3480CT.
Hi HJ. What chipset is it exactly? A driver change fixed a bunch
of bugs for many, but introduced some for others. ;o(
I'm trying to find out what all savage chips are affected. There is a
new driver - 1.1.16 out I'm going to grab and put in the next build.
Could you look at bug #34376 and see if it is the same bug?
Here is my chip info:
00:04.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. 86C270-294 Savage/MX-/IX (rev 11)
(prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: Toshiba America Info Systems: Unknown device 0001
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 248, IRQ 11
Memory at f0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 1
bug #34376 does sound familiar to my bug.
