strange display when shutting down or logging out of desktop
I did an ftp install of SuSE 9.0, and I'm very happy with it. One problem I'm having that I can't figure out is when I shut down. Whenever the desktop manager shuts down, my screen appears to melt. Random sheets of color converge on the screen until it's a uniform nasty green. If I log out, it happens before I get to the login prompt. If I shut the computer down, it does this and then shuts down normally. The system is a Dell Latitude with an ATI Rage Mobility card. I originally had a problem with the X display having a large gap near the top of the screen and the mouse pointer being inaccurate, but this was fixed when I switched from the 'ati' to the 'vesa' driver.
I've tried it with Gnome, KDE and IceWM, so I suspect it's a problem with X.
