I experienced similar problems before. In my case, this was due to
problems with cfbfillrect.c and cfbcopyarea.c.
Geert wrote similar routines in the CVS version of fbtest. I modified
them so they can be used as drop-in replacements for the kernel
framebuffer. See the thread "Console Rotation" last month.
