oh right - I remember something like that as well - also, if you had an
mplayer window straddling both displays (in a Xinerama setup), then a
shit-load of flickering went on.
that could be something to do with hardware acceleration. In a 3D
environment (as the OP mentioned, IIRC), I think the ATI Radeon is /not/
good for multi-monitor work, but for simple things like reading from a
browser while typing a document in the other monitor, then it's fine.
