Default minor twinview problem

i have twinview set up and works great with most apps, but tuxracer, for instance, has a very reduced screen and splits it accross the monitors. how can i get apps to display full screen on just one monitor?

i found this interesting...
with mplayer, if i move to fullscreen while the video window is in the very top left of either monitor, it will display fullscreen on that monitor. if it is not in the upper left, i assume it displays 1280x1024 relavent to the upper left of the video window. which includes off the screen and splitting it. the problem is a lot of apps don't allow switching between a window and fullscreen, so i con't control where they go fullscreen.

Try this:

Option "MetaModes" "1600x1200, 1600x1200; 1600x1200, NULL; 1280x1024, NULL; 1024x768, NULL; 640x480, NULL"

You may want to modify ~/.tuxracer/options to increase your screen resolution. Much cooler at 1600x1200.
