It is configurable in windows, so this is very unlikely.

There is no such xorg.conf setting, at least not one that works consistently. And even that is a hack using windows registry tweaks. If there was an xorg.conf setting that worked consistently then I don't think there would be anywhere near as many complaints.

And neither of those explains why Nvidia has told us nothing. Even if what you are saying is right, a simple "we aren't going to fix this" would make a big difference. But we haven't even been given that much. They have told us nothing.
