I wonder if that was the reason for the funky key repeats and very
slow screen updates of the cursor position back when I had an nvidia
card in here, but thought I was running the nv driver. When I had to
buy another card, it was an ati, and I went thru the system nukeing
nvidia version named libraries and the std named softlinks to them,
and re-pulling them out of the XFree86 archives as required.
To make a long story short, I've not had the sluggish key repeat or
cursor position update problem since. Fixing my faty fingered typu's
is now once again smooth and easy.
