 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
 less so.

 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.
