If you can build from source, please try the attached patch.



its still there.

It should have been sufficient to `make install` under
xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/drivers/i740.



rebuild with gcc-3.3 ok.
could be problem of gcc-4.



Is this true without the patch?



yes.
w/ or w/o the patch both ok.


This doesn't sound good.  You're certain you restarted the server between 
`make install`'s?

yes, 
  `make install`
followed by 
  `xdm` or `gdm`

then the screen flashed a blue screen very shotly, 
then the moniter sound inside(change mode to high resolution),

both compiler and linked libs could caused this issue,
 i guess ...

or we can wait till a newer version of gcc-4 out...
