Default 1.0-4363 fine until using dual head with :0.0 and :0.1 displays

I won't post a lot of info yet, just in case this problem has already been reported. I'm using a dual head Geforce 4 Ti 4200. Powercolor, in case it matters.

I'm not using Twinview, but I have each head setup using instructions in Appendix R (I think R) on how to set up each as a separate X display. :0.0 and :0.1, naturally.

Anyhow, I have no problems what so ever using a single display, but as soon as I start using both, two things happen:

1) switching to console causes an instant lockup
2) random crashes occur

2 has not been entirely separated from the fact that this is a new card yet, but 1 definitely has. That is, extensive testing shows that 1 is indeed true. 2 may or may not be, as I have not done intensive (read : used the card for days) on single display only.

If more info is require, please let me know. Prior to this card, I was running a Geforce 2 Ti, so this motherboard has had several months of workout without any lockup issues at all.
