One more thing - is it possible to test your patches on 1.5.0 ?

I'm afraid that I won't find enough time to upgrade to any later
version. Easier if I could just apply your patch to what I currently

BTW: setting a useful config with three LCDs is a real PITA. I had to
downgrade xserver to 7.3, because the latest xorg is plain crashing
with more than one video card (when using xinerama), and this is a
well known bug. Xorg Devs say that it will stop crashing with 2.6.32. Well.

Also I can't have composite and xrandr anymore. Also due to two-card
problems. Even though 1st is NVS 290 & 2nd is NVS 280, and all NVS
nvidia cards are designed to cooperate with each other (a different
design than geforce or quadro). Weird stuff.
