I suspect you are not using the latest X driver (V0.6). There are known bugs
prior to this that cause this problem.
The version of the driver used is printed in the XFree86 log file.
If you are using the latest driver and still see this problem then either
mail me directly or we should move this to the itvt-dev list.
