@Konrad, thanks, it helps to know that list is up2date. It is one reason I
posted; this behavior is unexpected based on the length of that list and the
fact that I get similar if not identical errors from a relatively old graphics
card and also a fairly new one.

@Konrad, both boxes are using nVidia graphics cards, not motherboard chipsets.
My only interest in motherboard chipsets is that they are typically dumbed down

@Konrad, errors look the same running directly or remote; I checked that before

@Konrad, I am running KDE :-) For the domU, I run the raw startx command, so I
can see the X messages. Is that not a valid way to test X11?

@Konrad, well it is the same garbage, local or remote xterm (actually Konsole,
