It does seem to be related to video drivers more generally. Outside X the
console driver from grub fails to reduce the size of text.
Since I am using grub version 2, it will take a lot of research to find out
what the scripts are doing. There is no simple VGA= parameter to change. I
have set the X server to setuid and am going to swap the video card back in
and try again later.
Fresh info from the openSUSE bug:
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
