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

Yes, the nvidia driver has it's own XineramaInfo interface. i.e. when twinview is
enabled, then by default, Xorg reports the two displays to the X clients rather
than just reporting the single big screen. The only difference is that with TH2G,
the nvidia driver can't detect the individual screens automatically and you have
to configure the XineramaInfo manually in your Xorg.conf. For 1280x1024:

Option         "TwinviewXineramaInfo"     "True"
Option         "TwinViewXineramaInfoOverride" "1280x1024+0+0, 1280x1024+1024+0, 1280x1024+2560+0"
