Description of problem:
This test was performed in response to the Fedora 18 Alpha Radeon Test Day.
The system is setup with multiple monitors with the right-hand monitor set as the primary monitor and the desktop extends into the left-hand monitor. The GNOME 3 Activities panel is contained entirely on the right-hand monitor as intended.
Openarena was run directly after login and played for about 5 minutes. The desktop display was normal before starting openarena. After exiting openarena normally, the display was mirrored across both monitors and the resolution setting was set incorrectly which made the text blurry and some windows inaccessible as they were 'trapped' between the monitors. Screenshots of the before and after desktop and of the display settings (System Settings -> Display) before and after running openarena.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always. This test was performed twice with the same results.
Steps to Reproduce:
Desktop is mirrored across both monitors and resolution is not correct on either monitor. Display is corrupted to some degree.
Running openarena should not change Display settings or corrupt display.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
