A machine with a real i82915 device works fine without any tweaks
required, albeit I am not sure now if I updated this machine before
or after "TearFree" was defaulted to "on".

I threw together a minimal "xorg.conf" and set it both ways and it
seemed to make no difference in the display--it was working well
regardless.  I suppose I'll keep it set to "false" to avoid the
memory/perfomance penalty.
