Description of problem:
I'm using Redhat 9, every time I switch between the terminal and the graphical 
screen and back, my terminal screen will use other characters instead of the 
character it used to use. I have this problem with my own version of a cash 
register program, but I'm having olso the sam problem with Midnight commander. 
I'm using a mainboard with the intel 845i chipset and the onboard video adapter.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.log in graphically
2.switch to terminal
3.log in and start up midnight commander
4.switch back to graphical
5.switch back to terminal and the character have changed

Actual Results:  the characters are disorted and have changed

Attach your X server log and config file.  It sounds like perhaps the video
driver isn't saving and restoring the video hardware properly on VT switches.

You may also want to report this bug upstream at http://bugs.xfree86.org for
potentially faster resolution.
