Comment 3 Bob T. 2007-06-20 21:47:30 UTC
I should have added that the virtual display worked with FC6 (and earlier).

Comment 4 Bob T. 2007-06-24 19:01:45 UTC
I've reverted to xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.6.5-10.fc6 and the virtual desktop works
fine. So there does seem to be an issue with 2.0.0-4. Changing severity to medium.

Comment 5 Bob T. 2007-06-29 20:21:12 UTC
It turns out this is not a bug but a feature of recent X drivers.  Essentially,
the xorg folks have decided to get rid of VIRTUAL at the driver level.  If you
want virtual desktops back,  please add a comment
supporting the following enhancement request:


The request is for adding a hook to the X-server code that will allow
window managers and "desktops" to implement virtual desktops easily.
