That is correct, using the first PCIeX16 slot disables the DP output
completely (unless forced to use the APU output in EFI configuration,
then naturally disabling the discrete card).

But that is not what's happening here: the discrete card is in the
second PCIeX16 slot that doesn't (according to manual) conflict with
the APU and the DP display does work until "something" happens.
Browsing through menus in xbmc is a sure way to reproduce the problem,
but it does manifest in normal desktop use too.

Oh, and the obligatory "it worked on Windows", so I doubt it's a hardware
problem ;).
