Dual-head, intel graphics card, compiz-fusion causing white screen.

I am not sure if there is the right board to ask this question. It might be a hardware related problem

My computer have an Intel graphics card, connected to two widescreen LCD panels. When the two monitors are working in a clone mode (i.e. automatically detected by the system), compiz-fusion works flawlessly.

The problem came when I managed to make dual head configuration work, following this TUT:


Whenever, I enable compiz-fusion by typing
Both screen go completely white, with keyboard and mouse still responding, by nothing else happen. I have to ctrl-alt-del, and then startx again.

After some researching, I found that:
fusion-icon -n
can get me started, but all the special effects are no longer available.

I knew there is a bug in Intel driver in F9 causing similar white screen, is this the same bug in F10 again?

fusion-icon -n
will output the following warning message:

 * Detected Session: unknown
 * Searching for installed applications...
 * No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap with direct rendering context
 ... present with indirect rendering, exporting: LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1
 * Setting option Indirect Rendering to True
 * Using the GTK Interface
 * Decorator "" is invalid.
 * Setting decorator to Emerald ("emerald --replace")
 * Setting window manager to Metacity
Window manager warning: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information.
