A bug in Xorg or the vesa driver, sadly.

Does it help if you disable the shadowfb option:
Quote
......
        ### [arg]: arg optional
        #Option     "ShadowFB"                  # [<bool>]
        #Option     "DefaultRefresh"            # [<bool>]
        #Option     "ModeSetClearScreen"        # [<bool>]
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "vesa"
        VendorName  "Unknown Vendor"
        BoardName   "Unknown Board"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
        Option     "ShadowFB" "false"
EndSection
.....
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
