Re: Old toshiba laptop: switching video modes is SLOW

Takes about 6 or 7 seconds just to change resolution.

I often switch between different X sessions, and sometimes between graphic modes on the same session. Weird thing is, even if two X servers are running at 1024x768 (this laptop screen's normal mode) switching between them takes the aforementioned 6-7 seconds delay to switch to the other server, + a few extra seconds for screen re-initialize or whatever.
