It is NOT the way I try Acceleration or not or what driver the box uses,
this happens with VESA, Radeon, RadeonHD as well. VESA worked before.
This is only on FreeBSD 8.0/amd64 with local displays. starting firefox3
remotely, this problem does not occur. I guess due to a lot of updates
in xorg-port there is again an issue. The never ending story with X11
and wicked updates.
