[mythtv-users] OT: xorg dual head with intel driver

I have Googled in vain so I'm hoping someone on the list can help me.  I
just migrated my Myth box to a new machine with built in Intel graphics.
I want to run dual head with separate desktops (no xinerama).

I've been able to either get it to display with xinerama (spanned) or a
broken dual desktop configuration where the second screen shows up both
separately and on top of the first screen (overlapped).  There doesn't
seem to be a way to get a clean dual desktop working.

The spanned version works using no xorg.conf at all (using detected
defaults) and the overlapping version is what I get with an xorg.conf
like this:

http://intellinuxgraphics.org/dualhead.html (but using intel instead of
i810 driver)

If anyone out there has a dual head/dual desktop system working with the
intel driver and is willing to share their xorg.conf I'd really
appreciate it.
