RH9, Radeon 9000Pro, some horizontal streaking



I bought a Radeon 9000 Pro (128M) for $200 last night, and installed it
this morning.  On booting, the RH9 box recognized the card (tho it
thinks it is a Radeon 9000, not the Pro.  Not sure what the difference
is.)

My old problem has gone away (since it caused by was a damaged card),
but my new problem is that I get a little horizontal streaking sometimes
(eg web pages with solid black background).  This doesn't show up on a
screen capture.  Naively, I would guess that the refresh rates 

I enclose the new XF86config file.  I ran redhat-config-xfree86 but then
later I adjusted the monitor vertical refresh rate to the officially
claimed specs (50-75Hz), rather than the probed values (50-85Hz) to see
if that made a difference; it didn't.

Any ideas anyone?

This is a RH9 box, running XFree86-4.3.0-8 from rawhide.  The monitor is
a Viewsonic LCD VP201m running at 1600x1200 and is connected to the
digital output of the video card.

Thanks.
