Thanks for the quick reply.
I've read the other thread and appreciate the points you raise. It sounds like we're on the same page regarding getting this fixed, however I too am suffering in two seperate areas.
1. MythTV (there is a workaround for this.....)
2. Compositing Managers (there was a workaround under Beryl, however the combined Compiz Fusion has revoked back to a problem).
I take on board your comment that nigling the apps developers to not use the current implementation of RandR would solve the problem, however that requires a lot of co-ordination with a lot of different parties. Obviously if Nvidia moved to implement V1.2 it would make life easier.
I am a little confused regarding your comments that 1.2 will only work on a single screen/GPU? I thought the whole point of implementing Xinerama in the 'core' code was to enable make Xinerama and RandR work across multiple GPU's?
Thanks in advance.
