The only way i have see to fix this is to upgrade the vic client to 1.16 like you have prob done, or run the matrox in stretch mode, and accept the limiitations it entails.
FYI i also notice poor performace on the QID using the VPConsumer alternative, i attribute this to poor opengl support in the matrox driver.
Its a shame matrox wont lift thier game and update drivers, otherwise i would consider this card ideal for an AG
