Question Blinking cursor (used to be distorted) on multiple screens, ATI driver


Today my cursor became distorted. It worked fine on the second screen, connected to my notebook and screenshots displayed it well. So I did a little googling, and found out, that it is a known bug. I followed different tutorials. And now my cursor is blinking and disappearing. And it drives me crazy. It was a lot better when it was distorted. My xorg.conf:


Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "amdcccle Layout"
	Screen      0  "Configured Screen Device" 0 0
	Screen         "amdcccle-Screen[2]-0" RightOf "Configured Screen Device"
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "Module"
	Load  "glx"
	Load  "dri"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
	Option	    "Xinerama" "off"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "0-LVDS"
	Option	    "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
	Option	    "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
	Option	    "DPMS" "true"
	Option	    "PreferredMode" "1366x768"
	Option	    "TargetRefresh" "60"
	Option	    "Position" "1920 330"
	Option	    "Rotate" "normal"
	Option	    "Disable" "false"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "0-CRT1"
	Option	    "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
	Option	    "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
	Option	    "DPMS" "true"
	Option	    "PreferredMode" "1920x1080"
	Option	    "TargetRefresh" "60"
	Option	    "Position" "0 0"
	Option	    "Rotate" "normal"
	Option	    "Disable" "false"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Configured Video Device"
	Driver      "fglrx"
	BusID       "PCI:2:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "amdcccle-Device[2]-0"
	Driver      "fglrx"
	Option	    "Monitor-LVDS" "0-LVDS"
	Option	    "Monitor-CRT1" "0-CRT1"
	BusID       "PCI:2:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Configured Screen Device"
	Device     "Configured Video Device"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Virtual   3286 1080
	EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "amdcccle-Screen[2]-0"
	Device     "amdcccle-Device[2]-0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Virtual   3286 3286
		Depth     24
	EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
	Option	    "Composite" "yes"
EndSection
How can I make my cursor look fine, or at least stop blinking?

It would be great to have compiz enabled, but my eyes really hurt.
