System: NetBSD 1.6ZE NetBSD 1.6ZE (SWINGER) #1: Sun Nov  2 17:51:41 PST 2003 macppc
Architecture: powerpc
Machine: macppc
	On a G4 with the following display:

000:16:0: ATI Technologies Rage Fury MAXX AGP 4x (TMDS) (VGA display)

	exiting the X server leaves the console in a mode incompatible
	with the Samsung SyncMaster 570S TFT display I'm using with this

	OFW and NetBSD can both use this display properly.  The X server
	is taking a bad exit path (maybe trying to put it into VGA text
	mode, and getting something wrong on the way out?)

	CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE the X server, or simply let it exit cleanly.
