Not only this. There's also this annoying bug in Edgy which makes your box stayin' alive forever. It can't power down your machine. Really annoying.

I know, I know it's on a 2.6.15 kernel but 2.6.17 has the same problems. Nothing changed for me.

The problem is that Xorg 7.3 (coming out in the summer?) is supposed to fix a lot of multi-monitor, plug and play, and autodetecting issues, so I think they're hesitant about duplicating efforts..

re: screenshots..I agree it looks very nice these days.
