In KDE 3.1 the Panel is now shown on one display only. IIRC is it also 
possible to configure your wallpaper that way.

Which ones? I use X with a pretty weird config (two screens, the left one at 
1024x768, the right at 800x600 with a virtual size of 800x768) for more 
than a year now and had almost no problems till now. The only one I can 
think of is krdc in full screen mode. Oh, and some old version of XFree86 
had a bug which made it calculate the horizontal dpi incorrectly (75x150), 
resulting in stretched fonts but that's fixed for some time now.
