That's good to know. Before moving to the latest, I couldn't run
glxgears at all, and I just wanted to make sure the hardware and drivers

No. I have a 1920x1080i timing mode from Jarrod that I was using with
so-so results before the upgrade. Now, I still have a 1080i mode, but
what is supposed to be on the left of the screen is on the right, and
vice versa. I'll try to illustrate in text:
What I should see:
What I do see:
The _'s indicate a vertical white bar. Actually, I am probably missing
about the N and M portions as well from overscan. My set can adjust it,
but it really warps the screen adjusting too much out this way.
This is the modeline:
ModeLine "1760x960" 74.5 1760 1888 2096 2208 960 1012 1028 1126
-hsync -vsync interlace
It is fed through an AudioAuthority transcoder to the component inputs
on my Samsung widescreen.
Hope that explains the problem better.
