Some additional info: The RH installation is on an IBM Netfinity 7000 server. 
The video card is an S3 Trio64, autodetected by Xconfigurator. The monitor is 
connected through an Apex/Outlook KVM switch.

In general KVMs are unsupported and likely to cause you some problems.  That
said, if this is still an issue for you, could you please attach your
XFree86.0.log from the affected machine?
