Question twinview and fonts

hello all.

managed to install the 1.0-4496 driver here on my suse 9.0 linux (currently gnome desktop) on my athlon xp 2500+ based computer with a asus a7n8x deluxe 2.0 board.
i finally managed to activate twinview and the two 19" TFT monitors that are attached to my geforce 5600 based asus card (two dvi outputs).

however, fonts are a problem. fonts in menus, on buttons below icons etc. were looking good before I activated twinview. but now they're awfully small! a capital letter is about 5 pixel high and I can hardly read things.

here in the webbrowser the fonts are perfect! the fonts in window titlebars are okay, too.

is there a link to the DisplaySize parameter in the "Monitor" section in the XF86Config file? I measured my two monitors and entered the line

DisplaySize 752 310

In the Screen section I have just one Mode:

Modes "1280x1024"

But my actual physical horizontal resolution is, of course, now with twinview 2560x1024. Do I have to enter this number 2560 somewhere? If so: where?

Here are the options in my Device section regarding twinview that I entered:

Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "28-95"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "40-70"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1280x1024"

Anyone any hint?

Thanks a lot!
