minimal xorg.conf that works around the problem
xorg-x11-drv-s3virge-1.10.2-1.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
I confirm that the Virge driver on the same system is working fine without xorg.conf with xorg-x11-drv-s3virge-1.10.2-1.fc10. The bug can be closed now.
xorg-x11-drv-s3virge-1.10.2-1.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
