this is unrelated to my triple monitor setup. this occured because i used
LeftOf in Xorg.conf. i changed all to RightOf and was ok (as i said before).
please dont blame all graphics problems on me having three monitors!!!
during bootup in the Xorg log it actually says what cards can do openGL and
which screens it will be disabled on (so i believe openGL will pose no problem
in my setup) but i might consider your recommendations so perhaps i can change
some settings as i cannot now, it is hard set in Xorg.conf.
as for which ATI driver i used, it was the default one loaded when i installed
SUSE. Xorg says Load module "radeon" loading radeon_drv.so (by X.org
foundation). i would have used the Nvidia driver SUSE provided if it
initialized when SUSE was installed but because it didnt i assumed there was
nothing to drive my Nvidia and installed it to make the other monitors work.

Back to this bug:
There is another bug that occurs with very simular symptoms and it happens
rarely, the last time it happened, i wrote "it happened" but i didnt provide a
discription of what i was doing to cause the rare bug, and so i will now:
i opened firefox on rightmost monitor, and while it was being drawn on the
screen i moved the cursor to the centre screen.
computer GUI crashed with Firefox still "appearing".
when i load firefox normally and you watch it appearing, there is a large
rectanglar hole in the upper left webpage area that is one of the last to get
covered before a page is shown, this was still there when it crashed.
