Running "sax2 -r -m 0=fbdev" in runlevel 3 opens up the sax2 screen but the
screen is split into two identical miniature windows on the top half with each
window 1/4 the size of what otherwise would be a full screen. The text was so
small that I could barely make out the cancel button and didn't proceed. "sax2
-r" which gave the proper full screen but as it looked ok, I cancelled it and
didn't proceed as well. I wasn't able to get back to a gui by switching back
to runlevel 5 (init 5) or even with startx and had to reboot to get a gui back.

If I am the only one that has seen this problem with firefox & thunderbird, I'm
inclined to let it alone since all is fine with the alpha 5
xorg-x11-libs-7.1-17 libraries and it may well disappear if I do a clean
install. For what it does to the menus, others would have brought it up by now
if it was widespread because it also affects the way web pages are displayed,
especially pages that use javascript.

Incidentally, not that it is related, I saw a similar miniature split screen
as described above when I initially started up the install dvd for the with the
boot option vga=0x31a . I didn't proceed there either and just did the install
without any options and made the resolution change afterwards.
