	Are you using DVI, along with Vblank? I've found that when I combine
the two, I end up with X locking up on me. Not sure if it also relates
to the fact that I am doing 1080i output. 

	Using VGA out through a vga->component converter works for me, but just
doesn't look as good, and doesn't sync right with the graphical boot
loader in Ubuntu. For now, I have just been living with the tearing, but
don't know how much longer I can stand it...
