Default Graphic errors with XServer Parameter -sharevts with GeForce GTX 580

Hi Nvidia-Community,

my GeForce GTX 580 on Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 64 bit with the current driver (Linux-x86_64/260.19.29/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.29.run) works without any problems.
But if I start the X-Server with the parameter -sharevts (for a multi seat configuration) colored dots (which change the color) are spread over the screen.
Interestingly this only happens on the first screen (:0.0) independent of the monitor I use. (this means the monitor is not guilty for this error)

I suppose the reason is a bug in the graphics driver.
Or does anyone have another idea?

The -sharevts option is not supported.

Thank you for the reply AaronP.

Does Nvidia not support multiseat configurations at all, or does it depend on the driver/card?
Because I already had it running with a driver from March this year and a Quadro FX 3800 (but it was not on SLES 11 SP1, but RHEL 6 beta).

Multiseat is not supported at all. If it worked for you at one point, it was by sheer luck.
