SVGA server creates problem with DiamondStealth3D2000

Video card: DiamondStealth 3D 2000 4MB VideoRam (probed)
Problem: When the server exits it creates white pixels on
the console window. Seems like a video buffer problem.
After going back into X and out again several times, more
and more pixels on the screen turn permanently white. (While
in the X11 mode the screen is fine).
Fix: Use the S3V server instead.
Some of the S3V drivers were incorporated into the SVGA driver and so
therefore Xconfigurator was set up to compensate for that. This has
proven not to be ideal for some circumstances. We suggest running
Xconfigurator with the --expert option to allow for choosing of a
different server. We are working to fix this for the next release.
