Question Zotac GeForce GTX 460 3dp in triple head setup


I'm trying to set up a triple head system with the GTX 460 and 3 * 24" monitors.
ATM, I'm preparing the 270.41.06 drivers for it, but cannot roll them out for the
moment, since it would concern the whole company (openSUSE 11.1 diskless setup).

Hence it is using the 260.19.21 driver for the time being. One display is connected with the single DVI port, two displays are connected by DP to DVI adaptors. It should result in a 5760x1200 desktop. While the setup works with a manually adjusted xorg.conf (attached), a few issues remain:
* nvidia-settings detects the two DP displays as one (3840x1200)
Consequently switching to fullscreen on the 2nd or 3rd display extends the window to both displays (3840x1200), while it extends to the single display on the 1st screen.

* Trying to resize google earth 6.0.3 window results in a X crash
0: /usr/bin/Xorg(xf86SigHandler+0x79) [0x80cbd99]
1: [0xffffe400]
2: /usr/lib/ [0xb67b0da0]

This is from testing the setup for just a few minutes!

Question: is it possible to detect the three displays correctly or is the above the expected behavior?
