           Summary: mergedfb doesn't work until OffTime expires
           Product: xorg
           Version: 6.8.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P2
         Component: Driver/Radeon

I am using mergedfb with the radeon driver supplied by Xorg 6.8.0 (radeon driver
4.0.1).  My system has a Radeon X300, dual-monitor card, both using DVI outputs.
I followed the basic instructions and got a blank screen on my second LCD. 
While the screen is blank, the monitor thinks it is getting a signal, because
the power LED is green.  X even thinks there are two screens, because windows
are placed on the second screen, the pager shows a stretched double screen, etc.
I let the system sit for a bit, and when the 10 minute "OffTime" timer expired,
both screens powered off.  When I moved the mouse to turn them back on, BOTH
screens came back on, and I was able to see everything as normal on screen 2.
