Bug#529178: video-radeon: Probably hardware limitation

Thanks for your comments (and sorry for the late reply)

Now that xorg 1.6.3 migrated to testing, together with a new radeon
driver and with a fglrx proprietary driver which does not anymore
support my hardware, I do not have a workaround anymore, except for
using VGA which is not a solution, I think (for the record, the new
radeon driver does not improve on the situation).

I tried the options and the modelines Alex suggested (see below), but
without any change in the behaviour. Every scrolling e.g. on the
bugreport page causes a 1-2 s blackout of the screen. You really stop

If you have any more suggestions I would be very happy (you don't even
get a new fan-less AGP card for a reasonable price easily nowadays...).
