Description of problem:
On one of my laptops which uses openchrome video driver RHEL 6.2 screen looks garbled. Same does 6.1 too. 

Login window is not centred and bottom panel is missing, the screen is clearly readable. 

When I login into GNOME the screen is not readable. Main menu is shown 4-5 times repeatedly. 

See screenshots.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # lspci  | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN700/P4M800 Pro/P4M800 CE/VN800 [S3 UniChrome Pro] (rev 01)

2. Install RHEL 6.2 snap #4 Workstation i386
3. No xorg.conf, use auto config
4. Boot and login into GNOME.
Actual results:

With this xorg.conf and changing driver to vesa I'm able to use my screen again.

Not a regression, moving to 6.3.
