Default Screen too wide with TwinView

I'm using a GeForce 440 MX, XFree86 4.4, NVidia drivers 5336 and Slackware current. I set up TwinView with my TV and what I want is that I work normally on my monitor (1024x768) and occasionally switch to another mode where my TV will be activated as well.

This works but with one problem: when I'm not using the TV, the screen size of my monitor gets wider then 1024x768. When I move my mouse beyond the right edge of the screen, the whole screen scrolls to the left. I guess the size of the extension to the right is about half a screen.

When I switch modes so my TV gets activated as well, the size of both screens is right. How can I fix this so in the mode without TV, the size of the desktop fits my screen?

Relevent section from XFree86Config:
