I am running:
         VMD 1.8.2,
         RHEL AS 2.1
         ATI FireGL X1-256 with fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.2.8

I have observed this as well. There appears to be an upper size limit to
the VMD window that the graphics card/driver can handle. And even resizing
the window can crash VMD.

I haven't checked to see exactly when the problem kicks in, but I use a
1100x1100 window for VMD without any issues.

The appropriate section of my XF86Config file is attached, FYI.
