OK, so the only solution is to fix the AGP driver to remember the stolen 
memory address, etc?

The thing is that your GIT version doesn't work either and gives the

The X log file says DPMS is enabled but doing 'xset dpms force off' 
doesn't do anything (although when you move the mouse or press a key 
the whole display refreshes so it appears X thinks it's been off)
