Initial Comment:


I am using a mandrake system with a 3dfx 
voodoo3 video card and the following problem 
occurs using Xfree 4.1.x and Xfree 4.2.

When running 2 xsessions (editing Xservers 
line to start up kdm session on :0 
and :1), I run into screen corruption 
problems which seemed to get worse as I 
used newer versions of freetype. 

I had used .rpm's generated by texstar 
( and I was all 
the way up to 2.0.8 when the corruption 
was so bad it was unusable. 

I have since downgraded to 2.0.4 
(included with mandrake 8.1) and the 
corruption is seemingly gone.

The problem appears ONLY when both users 
are logged in, and it only occurs on 
:0 when the user on :1 logs in.

My guess is this is some sort of 
static/shared memory corruption only 
triggered when multiple X sessions 
are running, my question is does anyone 
else use this configuration and NOT 
get screen corruption?

Let me know what I can do to help you 
narrow this down. 

Just to complete my setup, I'm using 
kde 2.2.2, qt 2.3.1. 

The corruption happens on the entire 
desktop and takes it form by fonts 
drawing over eachother, windows not
