I found the problem, a call to xf86RandR12TellChanged got added in
xf86Crtc.c in 2.0.0, which only shows up at run time if a randr change
Here is the fix:
*** xf86Crtc.c Sat Apr 21 19:59:48 2007
--- xf86Crtc.c.orig Sat Apr 21 19:59:07 2007
*** 1887,1895 ****
- #ifdef RANDR_12_INTERFACE
--- 1887,1893 ----
