Default Triple Setup stability problem

HI,

I have a couple of 'strange' issues with a triple head setup. First things first:

Distribution: Fedora 7 (x86_64) with nvidia driver from rpm.livna.org (was the same though with FC6/livna)
X log: http://lowlatency.de/fedora/Xorg.0.log
X config: http://lowlatency.de/fedora/xorg.conf
Nvidia driver version: 1.0.9631

lspci | grep VGA
00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51PV [GeForce 6150] (rev a2)
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV43 [GeForce 6600] (rev a2)

The first strange error I encounter is that everytime I try to restart X or shutdown the system it crashes the hole system. This only happens if I use a triple head config spanning across both cards. Dual head (xinerama or twinview) works fine.
The same happens sometime when I boot up the machine (Sometimes as in depends on solar flare activity ). If I boot up Windows XP before that (which has apparently no trouble at all with the triple head setup) Linux at least boots without any problems.

Help and insight would be greatly appreciated (and explanations why Composite only gets enabled on the first monitor).

I'd suggest reading the sticky posts:

Well so I did and checked all relevant ones (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=58498 and http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678). The kernel is:
Linux alkaid.a.lan 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 #1 SMP Wed May 23 22:47:07 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

the drivers are newer then described in the sticky posts, bios is the latest version and the kernel does e.g. not use MMCONFIG etc. and the machine is a hard lock when the error occurs so generating a nvidia-error log is not possible so maybe I missed a sticky post which would help me in give a better description if so please point me to it. Also if you need other information please let me know.

You need to generate and provide an nvidia-bug-report.log.

1.0-9631 is no longer supported with your GPUs. If this problem persists with the 100.14.06 beta driver, please provide a new bug report.

Still somewhat the same problem with 100.14.11.

My setup still is like this:
PCI Express Geforce 6600 with Samsung SyncMaster 205BW connected to DVI and Samsung SyncMaster 940N connected to VGA
Onboard (Asus A8N-VM CSM latest bios) Geforce 6150 with Samsung SyncMaster 940B connected to DVI, VGA port is empty

I have tested this quiet a bit over the last weeks:

If I do a cold startup straight into linux the monitor on the onboard dvi port is not detected.
http://lowlatency.de/nvidia-bug-report.error.log

If I first boot into WindowsXP (which always detects all monitors) and do a reboot and boot into linux then all monitors are detected.
http://lowlatency.de/nvidia-bug-report.working.log

Before the question pops up: Yes it is with the same config for X etc.

If there are further questions or dumps,logs you need, let me know. I at least know a bunch of other people who have the same problem.
