This is with the latest CVS I suppose ? I had a problem with Xinerama /
second head that I fixed though it tended to cause a different issue.

The, the mergedfb log looks like everything is ok. Do you end up with a
very large virtual area (sized like both screens) but instead of having
the second screen showing what's on the "other" side, it mirrors and
both are panning when the mouse hits the border ? If yes, then that
looks like something I've seen too, it looks like mergedfb doesn't
always setup some of it's own stuff properly on startup.
Can you try adding another mergedfb mode in your MetaModes (for example
a real clone mode, you can do that by using "+" instead of "-" as a
separator between the two screen dimensions) and then try switching back
and forth between the 2 mode pairs with xrandr ? Does that result in the
inital mode starting to work properly once you switched out and back
I'm not totally sure what's up with mergedfb at this point there, the
code is a bit hermetic to me, I'm still hoping that Alex will dig into
that part of the problem :)
Regarding the Xinerama issue, I'm not sure what's up yet, best is if you
could take register dumps of the working 6.8.2 setup vs. the non-working
