Most of the graphics tests I've tried (eg nexuiz) won't run.

The benchmark kicks off, I get a splash screen (distributed across 2 monitors in a multi-monitor setup) and then "The test run ended prematurely"

This is almost certainly related to the multiple monitor setup. There needs to be an option somewhere to tell the benchmark to run on a specific screen rather than trying to span multiple monitors.
