Xorg startup log
Using Live test day disc 2009-03-25.
Device: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : nVidia Corporation GeForce 8400M GS [10de:0427] (rev a1)
Ran "restartx" test -- booted to runlevel 3; ran 'startx' as normal user (results good); logged out of X. Console is unreadable.
Note that (1) incidentally, ran 'startx' again even though I couldn't read the screen, and X worked well again. Return to the console was the same, unreadable. (2) This problem does not seem to happen using kernel modesetting.
I can produce more information if needed; the Xorg log from the *second* startup of X is attached.

This appears to be fixed with either of the two newest packages available in koji:
