AH Cavewars and Third Reich text problem

I am getting messed-up text when running certain DOS-based SVGA games on my Windows 95 machine.
The problem is apparent in  Avalon Hill's Cavewars game (and Third Reich).  I am running these DOS programs on a P150 and Windows 95 (via MS DOS mode).  The text (and the hexagonal grid in Third Reich) contains intermittantly thick vertical/diagonal lines and primarily thin horizontal lines.  These are lines which actually make-up the text and hex grid.  I've simulated this problem in Windows 95 by setting the desktop area to a lower value (lower than my default) but still have been unable to find a fix.  Any suggestions?

At boot up, press F8. Choose to start only the command line (DOS 7.0).  Run your DOS games like this. Some game make direct hardware accesses and Windows 95 just doesn't take it.
