Excellent! Thanks for checking that out. Hmm, I still can't trigger it
even when I try to force on XINERAMA in the ServerFlags section.

DJ, how's the progress coming on jdk-6? I'm not familiar with the jdk
source at all, but I could probably track it down. Should we do
anything about the binary jdk? I think that information would be very
helpful in the book, but it kind of doesn't make sense for BLFS and
building from source.
