It remained gray even though the update worked flawlessly. I wish it
didn't work though, because the old X server bug hit me again, and I had
to downgrade to the original xorg rpms, do the libvgahw.a trick, etc. 
What a pain... Why is something being shipped with FC, if it doesn't work
as it should? I have a mainstream intel motherboard + video chip and this
bug still manifests after it has been reported to death and after so long?
