Default Re: Nvidia 304.32 & new 304.37 update breaks panning

Corrected History:-

After upgrade to 295.59 on Fedora 16, my panned area had some undesirable characteristics:-

The desktop background no longer covered the panned area
Some applications did not recognise the extended area as usable - Docky
Turning the CRT off/on would sometimes disable panning
The nvidia-settings utility would not manage the merging of new settings to the xorg.conf file


I had configured the following:-
a. Twinview over laptop screen and external CRT Display [1920x1080 + 1780x1050]
b. Setup panning only on the laptop screen to extend the screen from 1920x1080 to 1920x1400

The issues seen are compared to the previously correct working of panning since first using Fedora 16, about 7 months ago

Open applications can be :-
a. Moved to the newly define panned area
b. Application windows can be re-sized to occupy the newly define panned area
- with a Docky menu triggered when the mouse crosses into the panned area

Issues:-
a. The Docky menu would camp at the end of the main area and not at the end of the panned area - menus are now appearing in the "middle" of the screen.
b. Newly detected USB disk devices would appear at the lower of the panned area
c. System tray and bin would appear at the lower of the panned area
d. I have replaced the current xorg.conf with the minimalist nvidia-xorg.conf, then configured panning using the nvidia-settings utility
========================================

I have since upgraded the kernel and the nvidia driver on Aug-21 and the situation has been "normalised" to most of the applications do not recognise the defined panning area

New configuration: 304.37

a. Docky does not recognise the defined panned area
b. Newly discovered devices are now displayed at the start of the defined panned area and not at the end
c. The system tray now does not recognise the newly defined panned area
d. The desktop background does not cover the newly defined panned area
e. On login the panned area is correctly defined on the laptop screen - on recovery from sleep or extended screen saver activity either both displays have the same panned area OR neither have the panned area
f. Defining the pan area in the nvidia-settings tool and then attempting to apply, causes both screens to blink and flash for about 10 seconds and then fail to apply the panned area, but the xorg.conf has the panned area defined correctly
g. Logoff, then login correctly defines the panned area on the laptop, but it now suffers from the same issues
