Default I can't set up dual monitors with TwinView/Xinerama/Separate X

Hi, I installed Ubuntu Jaunty (64-bit) and I'm trying to make my two identical monitors work on it with an Nvidia Quadro FX580 gcard. I have installed the supported nVidia driver (180.44). In the Nvidia X Server Settings I could configure TwinView, but I get what I can only describe as 'color static' in a couple of columns. In the meantime the primary monitor looks perfect.

I tried the same hardware with Windows XP on it and I was able to set up everything perfectly. It seems to be a Linux issue.

Anybody have any idea?
