Default Re: Fedora 13+ multiple cards+ Xinerama = frustration

Greetings
The problem seems to be two fold. There is an issue with Fedora 13's X (up to 1.8.0.12). Xinerama is broken and won't allow the cursor to jump from one screen to another out of order. This has been fixed in rawhide with a patch (X 1.8.0.17), details available here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=567835

The second issue is the squares/artifacts that follow the cursor around only on the center screen. As of yet I have not determined what the primary cause is however I am inclined to conclude it is the nvidia driver. This is because I got the same squares/artifacts when I used the latest nvidia drivers on Fedora 11. That is to say, upgrading the nvidia drivers from 190 to 253 breaks my setup. There is nothing in X log to indicate any problems, nothing in messages or dmesg. Is there a way to enable more detailed logging from the nvidia drivers?

As I mentioned earlier, the issue only presents itself at the center screen. There is nothing special about it that I can discern, it is hooked up to the gtx 260. Any ideas, suggestions, are greatly appreciated.
