thanks for the report, but there is really nothing we can do since we
don't have access to ati's source code.  you should contact them
directly for support (afterall you did pay them under the expectation
that you would be getting a device with the opengl standard correctly

note that this isn't xscreensaver-specific.  you'll run into the same
corruption with pretty much any (fullscreen) opengl game when you're
using multiple monitors.

best wishes,
