screenshot of the error/glitch

After upgrading to Xorg 1.20 I have several issues with my graphics.
Using:
 GPU: Radeon 3000
 GPU: GeForce GT 630

X.Org X Server 1.20.0
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: Linux Arch Linux
Current Operating System: Linux archlabs 4.16.9-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu May 17 02:10:09 UTC 2018 x86_64
Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=780f2082-0707-4cfa-bd80-275a8900c09c rw quiet
Build Date: 16 May 2018  05:24:07PM
 
Current version of pixman: 0.34.0


I have one monitor plugged into my motherboard and two monitors into my gpu.
On start-up xrandr was setting my setup correctly.

"xrandr --output VGA-0 --primary --mode 1280x1024 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output DVI-I-1-1 --mode 1280x1024 --pos 3200x0 --rotate normal --output HDMI-1-1 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 1280x0 --rotate normal"

Now the script fails with "xrandr: Configure crtc 2 failed".
And only the monitor plugged into my motherboard is working.
I was once able to use a second monitor, but it was glitching like hell.
After a restart I wasn't able to achieve the same.
Now my mouse if flickering.

I assumed it was a problem with the new mesa drivers, but according to someone helping me there, it might be the new xorg server.

I’m observing similar issues with Cedar [Radeon HD 7350/8350 / R5 220] after upgrading from 1.19 to 1.20. The artifacts appear to be more severe, though, the screen is garbled completely.

Sounds like bug 105381 rather than this one.
