Yet more ATI - XINERAMA (8.18.6)

Well, I checked out the newest ATI drivers and I have been trying to get Xinerama to work as they state they fixed it all.
Well, let me put my xorg.conf here. I actually do get dual head to work, but it is like their COMPOSITE support: after dragging the windows around, I get artefacts and basically the screens become useless.
Before I start to curse ATI again, I want to make sure it's not me:
