Are you referring to the screen corruption problem, or the image
scaling problem?  I don't know about the image scaling problem.  I can
give it a try the next time I log out and log back in.

For the screen corruption problem, there seemed to be some strange
things happening in gdm with AccelDFS enabled (the black text when I
entered my username/password showed up as green instead of black), so I
assume that there's still some bug somewhere.

(Again, the AccelDFS bug seems to have popped up in 1:6.8.0, and the
image scaling problem appeared in 1:6.7.?  Although I do vaguely
remember some corruption occurring in 1:6.7.? with compositing
