Default X Server freezes when enabling TwinView on 9400M G

Hello,

I have Alienware M17x laptop, which has two ATIs 4870 Mobility and one integrated 9400M G, which I've been trying to configure on my ubuntu system.

I enabled 9400M in BIOS, installed nvidia driver v256.44 and configured X Server. Everything worked perfectly, even games like penumbra.

However, once I tried to enable TwinView through nvidia-settings, the main screen went black. Connecting from a different machine via SSH showed that X server was using 100% CPU.

The following lines get printed to Xorg.0.log, when trying to enable TwinView:
Code:
339 (II) config/udev: Adding input device Macintosh mouse button emulation (/dev/input/mouse0)
340 (II) No input driver/identifier specified (ignoring)
341 (II) XKB: reuse xkmfile /var/lib/xkb/server-B307B4D3C63DF85128987E198D1CFD8BBA0EF74A.xkm
342 (II) Aug 30 19:44:01 NVIDIA(0): Setting mode
343 (II) Aug 30 19:44:01 NVIDIA(0):     "DFP-0:nvidia-auto-select@1920x1200+0+0,DFP-1:1920x1080_60@1920x1080+1920+0"
344 (EE) Aug 30 19:44:12 NVIDIA(0): WAIT: (E, 0, 0x887d, 0)
Also the following xid entries get printed to syslog in regular intervals (as in one line every 8 seconds):
Code:
10825 Aug 30 18:25:46 heaven kernel: [  138.282530] NVRM: Xid (0004:00): 16, Head 00000001 Count 00000000

I've tried the same process with multiple kernel versions (2.6.32-24 and 2.6.35-18) with the same result. I've also reinstalled nvidia driver a few times, but that didn't change anything.
