Some problems occur with my SpeedStar A90 video card and Linux redhat 7.0 (which uses Xfree86 v4.0.1)

The screen gets totally screwed up when dragging icons, moving windows or scrolling text in X.

I already checked www.xfree86.org and upgraded Xfree86 to v4.0.2 which is supposed to support the Savage4 chip in accelareted mode, but that didn't fix my problems

The only thing I could come up with to fix this is to disable accelaretion by adding the option "NoAccel" in the device section of the XF86Config file.

Is anyone else experiencing similar problems using this card (or another card with the Savage4 chip) ?
Or does anybody know how I can get this card to work with accelaration in Linux ??
