Unhappy problems with dual heads

I have been having a lot of problems trying to get both of my monitors working with my new card. I can get Twinview going, but I want to have two seperate screens, each with their own menus, etc. Whenever I try to setup two seperate screens, I get the following warning in the X log:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Multiple displays connected, but only one display allowed;
(WW) NVIDIA(0): using first display

My only guess would be that I have the BusID setup wrong for the two Device sections.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.
