If I start X with driver version 2.6.1-1 from Debian experimental, and then switch back to the VGA console, the font glyphs are sometimes corrupted.  One time the space had two pixels turned on; another time, the lowercase 'd' had a little cluster of pixels wrongly turned black.  This doesn't seem to be permanent; switching around consoles, exiting and restarting X, and so on will eventually lead to correct glyphs again.

I'll attach my config and log.

ISTR a related fix going in recently; can you still reproduce this?

I think this one's been fixed; please re-open if you still see it with 2.7.0.  Thanks Andrew.
