Oh good - I'm not the only one.

I have the same with the "radeon" driver. Occasionally both screens go
black for a second or two, then come back as if nothing had happened.
I assumed it was either a flaky card or flaky driver as it affected
both monitors equally - now I think it's definitely the driver ;o)

As to the ETA for ati drivers, I don't know - but if your are
referring to the closed source drivers from AMD, then they release
roughly monthly and last released on the 15th June. So you'd expect
something around mid-July - without any guarantees that it will work
with Fedora 11!
