Can you provide a bug # (with a full backtrace if possible)?  I'm
putting a priority on following up on xserver segfaults.

(Actually there are no public X crash bugs open against natty at the
moment, so I wonder that what you're seeing is not actually an xserver
segfault.  Regardless, it should be investigated.)

The first half of that could be unity's handling of multi-head, which I
agree seems like it needs more QA.

The second half, regarding blank spaces where the mouse gets lost, is a
long standing known issue (bug #389519).  (There's been a patch
proposed but it's not upstream yet.)
