Define, latest. I am running Myth on Gentoo one update behind trunk and not
seeing this issue.
Also, can you see text in X at all? If its happening in X it could be an
issue that I have as well.
My HDTV reports bad info over EDID so I have the following set in my
    Option         "UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"
    Option         "DPI" "96 x 96"
If I do not have this, text shows up as only a pixel high.
