I have been experiencing consistent crashes when using Zaphod mode on Arch
Linux after upgrading the xf86-video-ati package from 1:7.10.0-1 to 1:18.0.0-1.
These crashes occur whenever I move my mouse to my second monitor, or when a
full screen application is launched on the second screen. I also had at least
one crash when closing dhewm3 on my primary screen. Disabling Zaphod and using
RandR to manage dual head works without issues. I am now using the modesetting
driver with Zaphod mode which also appears to work flawlessly.

I am using a SAPPHIRE HD 6870 1 GB GDDR5 PCIE graphics card.
