I have been having similiar problems. This is what worked for me.
I have a Hercules Dynamite Power PCI D902. Hercules board info
says that I have a SGS-Thomson STG 1702/1703 (PowerPort)
Ramdac. Well with XFree 3.11 and 3.12 on an older Slackware
(1.2x) distribution I had "mouse trails" and corruted fonts when I
set up according to a config generated by xf86config and superprobe.
I tracked down the 3.1.2a beta W32 server and installed the RedHat 2.0
elf distribution .....
Then I found out that if I said that I had
ClockChip "ics5341" <----- this is the programable chip
Ramdac "ics5341" <----- see README.W32
#Clocks 25.18 28.32 32.54 35.99 40.09 44.99 31.67 37.58
#Clocks 50.37 56.65 65.10 71.99 80.19 90.02 63.01 75.20
the ICS chip and took out the clock lines I got a good, clear, stable
screen at both 8bit and 16Bp (is it really 16Bp?? ) at 1024x768,
I imagine that this would have worked on the older a.out Slackware
distribution but it's not installed to try any more. I wonder if the
ics5341 is another name for the stg1702/1703 or if the Hercules board
info is wrong?
SuperProbe misidentifies the ramdac at an ATT40.... something if left
to its own devices.
