xorg 7.3 woes

While the switch to xorg 7.2 has been quite painless. The update to 7.3 was a big problem on both of my desktops.
My Desktop at home has a display with an incorrect EDID, and in xorg 7.3 it is broken to override these values. Hopefully this is fixed in the next version.
My Desktop at work has several problems. Problem 1: xf86-video-mga 1.9.100 is broken with my Matrox Millenium 2064W. I had to downgrade to, otherwise the Xserver would abort with a signal. I have no idea how to debug this further, as a Backtrace does not seem to give more hints.
Problem 2: If i move the mouse to the right screen (Screen0) I can’t move it back to Screen1. There was one thread on the mailinglist, but no general solution. Any ideas?

  1. Concerning your 2nd problem you could maybe try the patch attached to pr ports/116664?
