Description of problem:
I have installed redhat 9 with two displays, (one is Riva128, the otheri is
GeForce2) with xinerama, and the GUI locks up very frequently.
Not all applications locks up, but many applications, including Mozilla and
The problem disappears when I remove one of the two screen, and disable
xinerama. I'm not sure what the cause of the crash is, but since it only happens
on dual displays, it seems to have something with XFree86.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Redhat 9 with the default installation, using GNOME or KDE doesn't matter.
2.Install two displays(see attached configuration)
3.run Evolution, and it crashes almost every time.
