Maybe your thing is something else then.
My history is that I first saw the problem on my laptop. Then I replaced with a version from fixed sources, I think I hand-patched
them. That solved my issue. I haven't updated the laptop to 6.0.1 yet,
so I have not personally verified that that fix is really in it,
although a diff (cvs diff -rnetbsd-6-0-RELEASE -rnetbsd-6-0-1-RELEASE
exa_unaccel.c) seems to suggest that it is.  Unfortunately
has no cvs tags so "ident" can't show which source versions are actually

The description of the issue is slightly off though. It mentions "solid
blobs" or something like that. For me they are not solid but consist of
random pixels and I think they were monochrome.

My gfx chipset looks to be the same as yours, but the AGP address
