Unhappy latest drivers and xinerama

i have a debian sid setup with a riva128 gfx card (using oss nv drivers, since nvidia doesn't support it) and a tnt2 (using nvidia drivers)

since the upgrade to the new nvidia drivers, all KDE/QT applications crash on startup. (it appears to be memory corruption, since it crashes in free())

if i disable xinerama support (still dual-head but without xinerama) everything starts working again. if i change the 'nvidia' in my XF86Config-4 to 'nv' everything starts working again. if i downgrade to 4191, everything starts working again. so i guess the problem is in the nvidia xinerama support.

i already sent a bug report to linux-bugs@, but i'd want to know if there are people with similar setup/problems ...

I too have found this problem too but using using RedHat 8. I am using a GeForce2 MX/MX 400 and a RIVA TNT2 Model 64.

After installing the new drivers I can do an xinit to test the X server and everything works but as soon as I try and change to runlevel 5 or run startx, I get the RedHat splash screen and the machine just locks up.
