I hate to disagree with you :(

I have not had a successful X session with any 2.6.32* kernels on a machine running rawhide with VIA openchrome driver like you have.  I have X only running as root and with kernel.  With my experience I am reluctant to try the Xorg server, I want to try, but *hesistant* to do so.  The only one behaving ok is one machine with Nvidia chipset and noveaux is working fine there, the other machine with INTEL graphics is also misbehaving and X only works as root :(

I have been kind of busy and therefore not replied/asked for help and Christmas is around the corner.  If I can apply updates tomorrow and get any good thing going on that VIA machine I will reply back, otherwise I will leave things as they are and come back to work and test in after New Year's Day.  Happy Holiday season to all.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year :)
