Question Hortizontal mouse "spanning" after 'xrandr -o left'?

I have an Ubuntu Dapper 6.06.1 machine with a NVIDIA e-GeForce 7600 GTS card and 2 Samsung Syncmaster 204b monitors. TwinView is working well in the 'xrandr -o normal' mode.

However, when putting the system into what I call "vertical" mode (with 'xrandr -o left'), it does re-orient the monitors to a "vertical" view, and when I rotate said monitors everything looks good and works well except for...

Mouse spanning between the 2 monitors: I can not move the mouse horizontally to get to the other monitor. In order to move from the primary/left monitor to the secondary/right monitor, I have span my mouse on the bottom of the left screen to get to the top of the right screen. To get back, I have to move the mouse to the top of the right screen to get to the bottom of the left screen.

Is there a way to do this such that I can move the mouse horizontally to "match" the mouse screen pans? ie, I want to move the mouse to the end of the right side of the left screen to get to the end of the right side of the left screen (instead of the above scenario).

Does my question make sense?

-Matt
