The problem I had wasn't instability, it was halved performance and some
very strange issues in 3D programs, like Quake Live. I posted about it on
their forums: http://www.quakelive.com/forum/showthread.php?t=34946
I wasn't the only one who reported worse performance and other problems,
but a downgrade fixed it...
I hope that the latest versions have these problems fixed, I'll probably
try later this week.

I only use two virtual desktops, but thanks for the tip!
