Four monitors, only one screen in nvidia settings
 
I'm having a problem setting up my X configuration to meet my needs.

Config:
2x 8600 GTS's.
4x 1680x1050 lcd's
Xinerama

Everything is working great except for one big problem. The nvidia settings program only lists one screen (I'm assuming from the Xinerama). Therefore, I can only color correct one of the four lcd's. Is there any way to configure it so I can color correct all four lcd's and still share desktop across them?

The only way I was able to get it color correcting all four was to have independent desktops.

Below is my xorg.conf (only 3 monitors hooked up currently)
