I had the same problems with 3.1.1, using the then-current pkgsrc. There was
no way to remedy radeon (RV200 if I recall correctly) blooming. It might be a
long-standing bug in Xorg or, IMO unlikely, a kernel issue. Eventually I
uninstalled Xorg because I feared I would let the magic smoke out. Never
tried the vesa trick. Is DRI enabled in your config?

Best regards
