Yes it's happen also to me ... with a Linux 6.0 RedHat and
the MIDAS release 98Nov.
This is totally normal if you use startx with the default option bpp 16 ... I don't know
exactly but MIDAS doesn't manage it ... or it is the XFree86 which cause problem (this
should be fixed soon).

The solution ... I run MIDAS since 3 months without problems (a part the color gestion) is to
run your X session with the command:

        startx -- -bpp 8 (or 32 but I doesn't works on my Laptop even with 8Mb for the graphical card).

Enjoy again MIDAS like me, and good luck,g
