use a commercial X-Server like Accelerated X .
I will try their demo driver. Thanks again
I have tried the drivers from http://www.xig.com
(with kernel 2.4.7-rc3)
and according the configuration I use it either crashes the system or
enters an infinite loop with the keyboard disabled. So, this does not
seem a viable solution.
In the meanwhile I found the obvious (once you tried it) workaround to
the corruption on external monitor. Simply boot the X40 with the
video-beamer plugged in, and the external output becomes the default
one: so the Ctrl-Alt-F1 Ctrl-Alt-F7 trick works on it, and overlay is
sent to it (so you can watch movies using xv on the external exit).
Jean-Louis Leroy has found a even better solution but that may not work
with xv (I have not tested it)

I'm in the same situation as you, it appears, and I didn't even know
because I hadn't tried an external monitor yet.
But here are some good news: I found out that if I kill X after
switching to the external monitor, the image returns just there. Okay
I loose my session in the process but it's still better than rebooting
to XP isn't it?
