This may or may not indicate a real problem.  I've never seen such
behaviour, but I've never run Xsun24 on the cg14 for any significant
length of time, either.

One thing my cgfourteen driver does is support RASTERCONSOLE at 24bpp,
so the console doesn't go totally unusable upon starting X.

Others have made similar remarks.

I've just finished putting some stuff up on for your perusal and
possible grabbing.  README is a brief once-over, kernel/ contains my
cgfourteen and tcx drivers, and patches.tar is a tarfile of my X source
directory including all the patches.  patches.unpacked is an unpacked
version of patches.tar, in case you want to poke around without having
to fetch the whole tarfile.

I hope these help people with SS20s and SS5s....
