I've finally gotten fglrx installed successfully on a fairly new Fedora 18 install. I installed it by downloading and running the binary from AMD (support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx).

However, when I try to use a dual monitor setup I get the glitch you see below. A dark-themed emacs is running on the left monitor and a semi-transparent terminator is on the right.

(I can't publish links, but the images are at imgur.com/a/PEoZN)

This happens whether I configure the dual setup using xorg.conf or xrandr.
