What annoys me most about the Radeon driver is the off-by-one error in the bmove routine. Whenever text is copied to the right or down, it gets positioned incorrectly. I posted the fix, but no one paid attention.

Mayb it was just "missed" in the flow of hundreds of mails that go
through this list. Can you re-sent it to me, and also precise which
kernel version it applies to ?

Oh, I failed to mention this bit.

I've seen it in 2.4.22-gentoo-r7 and 2.4.25-gentoo.

The bug is NOT present in Red Hat's 2.4.18-27.7.x

Can you send me the fix you posted back then ?

Sorry. I forgot all about this. If the description I sent isn't good enough, I'll have to make a proper patch. Is that what you want? I doubt I gave my original email, but its essential content is in my more recent posting anyhow.
