Also, when using the "vesa" driver, it is very, very slow to initialize.
Upon running 'startx', I see the wscons vt screen for about 30 seconds
followed by X-server black screen for about another 30 seconds before
the classic "grey stipple" root pattern appears, followed shortly by my
first client application (typically 'rxvt-unicode').

OK, I paid more attention this time.  The server switches to the wscons
vt but takes about 50 seconds to switch mode and display a black screen.
The black screen lasts just a passing moment before the grey stipple
appears, followed almost immediately by my X clients.
