Sorry for the late reply, but I'm just back from my hols.

Are you/anyone planning on implementing said painful workaround? While I
appreciate the problems, I would be really gutted if I couldn't get a
nice 3D desktop on my laptop when connected to an external monitor for a
large desktop area!! Unf. my lappy has a i915 rather than an i965... :(

Any info appreciated.
