Dashed lines drawn incorrectly by NVIDIA TNT2

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)
Dashed lines are not drawn correctly. Parts of the lines are missing, or
they are drawn more or less solid. Solid lines, area stipple patterns etc
do work correctly.
I am using the XFree86 version that came with Red Hat 7.1. I also
downloaded and installed the nvidia drivers from www.nvidia.com, but with
the same disappointing result.
Same computer with Read Hat 6.2 does not have this bug. Neither does
another system with Matrox G200 and Red Hat 7.1.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try an application with dashed lines.
Computer: Compaq Deskpro EN SFF, PIII 933Mhz, i815 with onboard NVIDIA
TNT2, unmodified Red Hat 7.1
This error is not confined to just the nv driver. I found the same symptom on a
Celeron 677/i815/Matrox G200, but only if acceleration is turned off with
'Option "NoAccel" "1"' in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.
What happens if you use:
"Xconfigurator --preferxf3" in Seawolf?
Closing bug due to lack of information and feedback.
Suggestion: Use NoAccel and if that fixes it, remove NoAccel and
try playing with all of the XAANo______ options documented on the
XF86Config manpage to locate the specific acceleration functions
that are failing.
