The nouveau-equipped machine shows the same shifted cursor/font with
glitched borders and leftover character bits.
For completeness, on a machine using the intel DRM/KMS driver with a
real i82915 device, the downward shift seems less pronounced than on
the other systems, but it's still there and still glitches, although

A system with a VIA chipset and using "viadrmums* at drm?" also shows
the corruption/glitching. Additionally, upon aborting 'xdm' with <ctrl-R>
(takes 4 presses) and returning to the regular VGA text console, the
contrast is reduced. The background seems a little brighter and
the text noticably dimmer.
A system with an XGI Volari Z7, with "sisdrm* at drm?" in the kernel
("sis" xorg driver) likewise displays the corruption/glitching. Rebooting
with GENERIC (i.e., w/o the "sisdrm" driver) made no difference.
