Upgrading Lucid to the latest xorg seems to have introduced all manner of trouble with this card (slow cutting/flicker and lines) - had these for about 6 months there. Is anyone else using a updated Lucid system with the latest Xorg and this card with no troubles?

I've tried numerous times to reconfigure and followed the guides but no luck yet my next option will be to downgrade xorg and try again. Also tried Maverick and Unity but no luck too.

The interesting part is that there were a lot of annoying whack vertical and horizontal lines being introduced. Running it in low graphics mode for a couple of days seems to have fixed the issue which is rather amusing and I found out the open source drivers drive the card real hard which is perhaps why the lines appeared.
