Default Updates for X.org 7.3

Server crash with X.org 7.3 and Xinerama

X.org 7.3 enables the Composite extension by default, but it fails to initialize when Xinerama is enabled. This causes a bad interaction with the NVIDIA driver resulting in a server crash. To work around this problem run
# nvidia-xconfig --no-composite
to explicitly disable the Composite extension.

Mouse problem with X.org 7.3 and multiple X screens or Xinerama

The version of xf86-input-mouse shipped with X.org 7.3 contains a bug that confines the pointer to one of the screens. You can avoid this problem by using the xf86-input-evdev driver instead.

[Edit: This is fixed in xf86-input-mouse-1.2.3]
