Does not work on my ibook/m3. First: the patch creates a weird vertical
line under X on my LCD. Second: it doesn't help on CRT either, the
screen is still shaking and, worse, it is doubled - I get two overlapped
pictures of my desktop.

Is there anything particular I should add into XF86Config-4? Can someone
who got the patch work on her ibook/m3 send me her XF86Config-4?

Thx a lot.
