Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

i am running an HP xt926, but was unsuccessful in finding the actual video card
information. the video card is set to "VESA driver (generic)" with 8 megabytes
of memory using the "vesa" driver.
the monitor i own is a ViewSonic VA720 flat panel display.
This bug is quite old now. Given the lack of activity on this report and the
likelihood that this bug has already been fixed, I am going to close it. If you
encounter the problem discussed in this report with Fedora Core 3 or a recent
version of xscreensaver, feel free to reopen.
