hrmmmm... xrandr.... pretty nifty....

just a couple of observations... hope the nvidia people work on the twinview stuff a littlemore... cause there is a bug in the xinarama code...

just for giggles, i ran :
[alex@plum src]$ xrandr --screen 1 -o 3

and instead of just failing and telling me why, it said:
Invalid screen number 1 (display has 1)

now... gnome and kde and whatnot detect that the display has 2 monitors, 0 and 1, but i guess xrandr dosent either because of the xinarama code, or cause the driver dosent support it....

incase anyone was wondering, when i just ran it correctly:
[alex@plum src]$ xrandr --screen 0 -o 3

i got:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 157 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 2 (RRSetScreenConfig)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12

which i would have expected.... just some handy dandy info for whoever cares
