Oh, sorry, that was my standard-answer for problems with the Cybervision.
Maybe I should read more careful:)
There is a problem with Xamiga24, fvwm and xterms (mentioned in the source).
It somehow depends on the screenmode you are using and happens on certain
actions. It doesn't happen if one starts xterm with the -ah option.
Which screenmode do you use, and can the buserrors reproduced with
certain actions or are they random?

I can't believe this can be caused by the buster, but I'm no
hardware/buster expert. It seems that everything is possible:(
