On my setup, with an OEM G450 16MB (and for someone else with the same
kind of card), the video outputs are swapped - Screen 0 shows up on the
second video output, and Screen 1 shows up on the first video output.
I've tracked it to a driver problem and have a fix. I don't know if
it's a problem with this particular OEM card, but Windows seems to work
properly on it.
The fix is easy. Apply the attached patch to

Got the same problem.
We are ordering G450's now to replace some nvidia geforce. (The latter has
some rather bizar "opengl" drivers, which tend to crash programs like
kdm, just because they are linked with it somehow. Appearently they do
not understand the concept of the X-windowing system).
G450 with 32 MB (SD?)RAM, dual head.
Had to upgrade the BIOS to prevent lock-ups.
Then had to change the configuration to use Screen 1.
After this escapade, the office-maintainers got the feeling the thing
is faster somehow...
This is all with debian/unstable XFree86 4.0.1 without dri...
Will soon try 4.0.2, and will try to use the cvs-DRI version.
(I'm just longing for the day that I have time to get this *(!$U!nvidia
card out of my system, and replace it with a decent support card. Hey,
ever tried to debug those nasty programms from which you know exactly what
the bugs are, but there is no source to fix. Sigh....).
