Default Re: xorg crashes with xinerama + crashes with compsite and OpenGL

Possibly xorg itself has the bug
Ok, the Xinerama Problem is also identified. Thanks to that thread:

I disabled the composite option (in xorg.conf, not just not running a compostitor!) and now xinerama is working fine with my two 7300GT and 3 screens.

Seems compositing is a big issue for the nvidia driver.
I'd love to know the problems beeing recognized/working on
I don't want transperency - vista like - just for eye candy, but for real transparent (inactive) consoles for example. Eye candy of dropdown shadows are also welcome of course! I'd so much like to have a composite compatible nvidia driver
Could AaronP perhaps leave a comment? Or Zander? Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
