Errm, unless I am doing something different than you here, I've used the Xinerama extension for the past 2 years to 'span' my desktop across two monitors. In fact right now, my primary monitor is an LCD at 1280x1024 and the secondary is a CRT running on the bare nv driver at 1024x768 (there is a bug in the current drivers that cause GF2 cards to display gibberish). There are a few small bugs with Xinerama but you might be able to get it working better with the TwinView config (see the release notes). Here are the lines I use in xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "ServerFlags"
        Option "Xinerama" "On"
EndSection
And the rest of my file:

Hope this helps.
