Basically, yes: i.e. in my case i needed to add the following lines in the xorg.conf:
Option "TwinviewXineramaInfo" "True"
Option "TwinViewXineramaInfoOverride" "1600x1200+0+0, 1600x1200+1600+0, 1600x1200+3200+0"
However, i have experienced that some window managers or applications ignore
(true/faked) xinerama. Gnome & KDE and related applications should work fine.
In other words: if the twinview setup worked fine for you concerning
maximizing windows, then, in this respect, TwinViewXineramaInfoOverride
should also do it with the twinview+DH2G/TH2G setup as proposed above
since it uses the same underlaying mechanism (the nvidia xinerama
