Yep, unstable in my experience too.  Maybe XFree86 4.0.2 will have a
stable driver.  Until then, I've dropped back to one monitor  :(

If you switch the window manager in GNOME's control center, there
shouldn't be any problem.

When I had two video cards installed (and had xinerama) I was really happy
with sawfish.  Maximizing would only fill one screen, and windows weren't
placed such that they spanned monitors.  What problems did you have?
