Default Xinerama breaks Xrandr

I have two monitors. I would like one to work in landscape orientation, and one to work in portrait orientation. This of course excludes TwinView.

Anyway, I had it set up for two independent screens, with RandRRotation enabled in xorg.conf, and 'xrandr -d :0.1 -o left' in my .xinitrc. This worked well, except that I cannot drag windows from one screen to another.

So I enabled Xinerama. I had no problems dragging windows from one desktop to another, but now xrandr is broken. Not only will it not rotate, it will not resize, or even query. Any invocation of xrandr gives me this:

Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".
RandR extension missing
However, looking through my Xorg.0.log tells me that RandR is enabled. I have attached the output from Please let me know what I can do to fix this. Thanks.
