Problem with TFT monitor, NVidia on Linux

Hi all,
I got a new TFT monitor, that is the good news.
The bad news is that since then the quality of bzflag's display is very poor.
The shockwave is no longer semi transparent, I now can not look through it.
And a tank in motion on a building is sometimes partly, sometimes completely hidden.
The flag is always visible.
I switched back to my old CRT and the quality was best.
This must be a problem with my NVidia driver on Linux.
Anybody found this problem too?

My card is a GeForce FX 5200, the driver package is
But I also tried with a Quadro Geforce and I also tried with a
Radeon9200SE, same results.
I have SUSE 9.2 installed, kernel version 2.6.8-24.25-default.

I could nowhere find what is the screen resolution bzflag chooses.
Anybody knows?
