Default Re: Nvidia + Matrox TripleHead2Go with resolution 5040x1050!

Hello, tripleheaders! Brief question of someone considering spending the lot of money required to get a triplehead2go:

- It is possible to have X "know" that the huge fake screen that the Triplehead2go presents to it really is three screens (in my case, that would be 3 x 1280x1024)?

In other words: is it possible to configure X in such a way that, when you click the "maximize window" button on a given window, it maximizes to cover just the (e.g.) 1280x1024 pixels of the screen in which it is being displayed? (As opposed to maximizing to cover the entire 3 screens!)

[This matters for me a great deal because I have for a long time used a tiling window manager (xmonad) which arranges/"maximizes" windows so that all screen space -- **within the current physical screen** -- is always used up. ]

From what I understand, the way the triplehead2go works could make a nightmare of this kind of behavior. Or is there an easy way to address this?

Many thanks for letting me know your experience with this.
