Radeon 9000 DRI/Xinerama Issues


I've found somewhat similar questions on these forums but not ones that help my situation. I have an ATI Radeon 9000 Pro with two identical monitors. Now the issue is not with installing drivers or setting up Xinerama, it's that with Xinerama turned on I lose my 3d accel. Just wondering if anybody has seen this before or if I screwed something up.

Please note that DRI worked fine before Xinerama and that I AM NOT WILLING to switch to ATI's crappy drivers.
