The problem was that the video memory size was mistetected to be 8MB.
My card has 4MB onboard memory.

When I put 
	VideoRam    4096
in the "Device" section, the problem went away.

Thanx to Alan Hourihane for finding the solution.

The memory mistedetection occured with both 4.2.1, and CVS HEAD, not
just with 4.1.0.
