Installing WarpOS 5 or 5.1 makes aga output blank or garbled!!!!

this is driving me crazy! every hardware change on the amiga brings MORE and MORE probs!!!! outrage!

I have a csppc 233mhz by phase5 coupled with a g-rex4000D.
up to the point I install warpOS libs everything works fine. if I install wos (and still in AGA) then the amiga will boot and 3 things can happen:

1. os3.9 icons will load, but when it comes to load the backdrop the amiga will hang.

2. os3.9 icons will load, and when it loads the backdrop the AGA output will go OFF , the amiga works FINE and if I switch to the voodoo3 I will see the 4color representation of AGA (it uses the ppc to copy gfx data to grex video card)

3. after icons the aga display will be totally garbled.

IF I delete (using voodoo3 display ofcourse) from LIBS: powerpc.library and reboot all work excellent again after a reboot!

and this is with a fresh 3.9 installation, bb1+bb2, and cgx4 (inactive, no cgx mode used or configured)
no probs whatsoever with aga before wos install, ppc pcu is fine as far as I can tell (runned ppc software rock solid 30 mins before I re-install OS), tried entering from wos prefs to always use the video address $82000000 ....
run a memcheck prog on chipmem and fastmem all OK

waht else to do?
