As far as I know in Xorg 7.3 only one driver supports randr 1.2 that
being the Intel driver, the released ATI driver is still 6.6.3 which
is the old style driver. We've done major testing on the randr-1.2 ATI
driver but a final gold release wasn't shipped with Xorg 7.3.

For intel users old-style dualhead config barely worked before..
