I'm using the radeonfb driver with a radeon 7000 with the frambuffer

if I stop the messages with CTRL+s and try look the previous messages
with CTRL+PagUp (backward scrolling) the screen become unreadable. In
fact some lengthier lines are not erased scrolling backward and some
random characters a overwritten instead. So it's very difficult to
read the messages.

I don't have such problem with the frambuffer at 1024x768.

All the previous kernels I've tried have this problem (at least up to 2.6.15).

If someone can look at this issue I can provide further information.

I have probably the same problem - but with vesafb on my notebook (800x600). When I scroll back/forward or run mc and then exit, it fixes itself. The problem was probably always there (in 2.6.x - don't know about older versions).
