[ltp] i1200 and graphics initialisation

I am using an i1200 series ThinkPad (Model 1161) and have a problem using
X. When I'm doing a cold boot, X has some severe drawing errors such as
not drawing window backgrounds. However, when I first start Win 98 and
then reboot into Linux everything's fine which leeds me into thinking,
that the graphics card (Silicon Motion Lynx 3M+, with XSVGA and
smi-driver) needs some initialisation that the X-Server cannot provide.
Unfortunately, the driver for my card is not documented.

Any idea how to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated,
