I'm in the same boat.  640x480 works, on my Centris 610 internal video, but
800x600 wraps.  I was able to use the SLOTMAN_HWD_SBC kernel to get decent
video, but that's probably overkill, and ... it kills my "ps" command.

Is there a way I could take just the video driver out of
-current, and compile it with the rest of the standard 1.3.2 source and get
a kernel that doesn't wrap my display?  I don't think I'm ready to jump
into -current completely.
