Yes, that's a known regression. You do not need to use Xinerama to
support multiple displays from an Intel chip though, the driver has
built-in multi-head support. You can configure it in the xorg.conf file
using instructions in the intel driver man page, or you can configure it
on the fly using the new xrandr application.
