Default Re: first display on twinview

You are wrong. This isn't a window manager issue, but a driver issue. It determines which monitor in TwinView gets primary output from the X driver, and as of now this cannot be changed whether or not you use Xinerama. It gets more annoying in TwinView Clone with an LCD and TV-Out, where TV-Out is ALWAYS the primary output, and things like Xv and OGL have to be pulled away from it to work halfway right on my own computer monitor!
