This is very odd.

System: AMD Opteron 216 (Asus KFN5D)
Video: ATI X1600 PCIX
Linux: F17 Beta (RC3)
Dual-hard setup (one LG E1940T via DVI port, one LG E1940S via VGA port)

$ uname -a
Linux 2cabezas 3.3.1-3.fc17.i686 #1 SMP Wed Apr 4 19:15:37 UTC 2012
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

$ wine --version

When I launch any win32 app under WINE the screen flickers for about 2
seconds, but only on the 2nd display.
Then it returns to normal.

As soon as the win32 app launches, I can work with it just fine, move
it between displays, and the screen doesnt flicker anymore.

Just a minor anonyance but perhaps there's something WINE is doing
that shouldn't be happening?
