Are you sure that you turned the Xinerama option off? I never turned mine on,
and I have two seperate desktops that have seperate backgrounds, and many of
my friends at first thought it was two seperate computers.
However, I never got screensaver on the secondary monitor to work, and it
never seems to go into powersave either, which is quite bad as it is a CRT. I
remember that I did make a reply sometime in January, I think, about putting
screensaver on both screens, but I never got any replies.
