    Mirroring Freezing Display
    Hello everyone,

    I am running OSX 10.8.2 and recently encountered a problem when mirroring my screen. When I mirror, the screen freezes and I cannot access anything with my mouse. The mouse works, I can move it around but I cannot click on anything. Folders, background, windows, etc (whatever was showing upon mirroring) becomes a still "image" and nothing can be clicked.

    I have tried:
    -Multiple restarts
    -Multiple monitors (VGA and DVI)
    -Opening all frequently used apps, closing them, restarting, etc.
    -Booting from an external HD with OSX installed (works)

    For the life of me, I cannot figure it out... My guess is it is software related or possibly browser related but I cannot seem to fix it.

    exact same problem here with all of out 8 mac pro updated to 10.8.2, I tried NVIDIA 5770 and 5870 and got the same result, the only way i can get back the extended display to work without mirror display enable, is to make a PRAM reboot with only one display connected, then if i connect a second display and enable mirror display, the mouse is moving but everything is frozen until i disconect the second display.

    if i downgrade to OS 10.7 then everything is working fine.
