PSU was replaced with one rated at twice the output already. And we're talking 
about PCI radeon 9250, not HD48xx :o)

It works fine with F8 up to kernel 2.6.24.7-92.fc8. After that, mostly OK, but 
locks up after anything from an hour to a day, and can trigger a "hard" freeze 
by running a few 3D apps then (oddly) quitting one of them.

As F8 was near EOL when I discovered the latter, it's NOT been filed as a bug. 
So it doesn't exist ;o)

Anyway, I don't really consider having two or three graphics cards to in any way 
be an "edge case" since X always was designed to support multiple displays.
