Description of problem:
After successfully configuring my system to use both Monitors as one frambuffer (using the options of xorgs's ati driver, my xorg.conf is included as attachment) I experienced an "Out of Memory" problem regarding gnome-creensaver; this was reported before, but I found out that it only occurs when I use both monitors. My first wild guess: the MergedNonRectangular option of the ati-driver. As a result of this i have a virtual Dektop-size of 2624x1200, which in turn is limited on the secondary display to a y-resolution of 768 via the MergedNonRectangular option.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up X using attached xorg.conf
2. Wait for the screensaver
Actual Results: Memory was completely eaten up. Once the system was completely unresponsive
Expected Results: The login-screen should have been waiting for me

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.
Thank you in advance.
