Default Linux 53.36 drivers: Dualhead on FX5200: Flickering VGA head

Hi all,

I recently upgraded to the 53.36 drivers after the previous version I had started causing segfaults as the GLX driver loaded on XFree init. Everything worked well enough, except for the VGA head on my dual-headed system... Under load (ie, window movement - and even occasionally not under load) , apparently the VGA head will "flicker" - corruption for one frame, looks like the monitor losing sync. (This is on a Viewsonic VA520 connected.) I did not have these problems with the previous drivers.

Connected to the DVI port is a Dell FP1901 running at 1280x1024. Connected to the VGA port is a ViewSonic VA520 running at 1024x768. I am assuming that it is not a memory bandwidth issue, as it worked fine with previous driver versions. The card is connected to the AGP interface on my Athlon 1900+ system.

Attached is my XF86Config (renamed to XF86Config.txt to be let through to the board.). Please let me know if you need any information that I have not provided.
