I've done some tests too with faked mergedfb (replugging the monitor
constantly is a major pita, btw), and this boils down to a simple
initalization issue (at least with the mergedfb pageflip patch). Because
it actually only happens the first time a 3d app is started, switching
to a VT and back or scrolling in a virtual resolution fixes it and it
will never appear again.
I believe the problem is AdjustFrame is only called before dri
initialization is finished, so directRendering is not enabled yet and
thus the values in the sarea never written.
However, I tried fixing that by moving (also tried copying) the
pScrn->AdjustFrame(scrnIndex, pScrn->frameX0, pScrn->frameY0, 0);
to the end of RADEONScreenInit (3 lines before the end to be exact) and
all I got was a SIGSEGV :-(. I can't see why it would segfault and can't
debug it, since as always when Xorg crashes in initialization, I don't
have any display left...
