Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one) whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

Xorg.0.log for xorg.conf with BusID (Attachment #343825 [details])
It was reported that specifying the BusID worked in one particular case (with kvm-85 userspace, though), so I tested that as well. Made no difference.
The pv console device doesn't claim its pci class correctly, and the X server treats it as a candidate primary video device. This is way lame.
Fixed in 188.8.131.521-1.fc11

Xorg.0.log for KVM-85
While I can now confirm it works using KVM-85 (not KVM-84) on Ubuntu Jaunty, it doesn't for Fedora.
