Default bug: pre-rotation values reported by NVxinerama

heres an annotated scaled-down capture representing the bug that a few people have complained about... Option "NoTwinViewXineramaInfo" "1" will prevent it from occuring but then windows span both and dialogs popup right between..but thats not as bad as this:

edit..'rotation' means XRandR. in this case, its 2 monitors in portrait, but 'above' or 'below' is still necessary for proper twinview orientation even though the monitors are not vertically stacked..

Hi Carmen, thanks for pointing this out.

Currently, XRandR rotation and TwinView do not play well together. We hope to address this in a future release.

Any updates on this? I'd really like my WM to get correct information, rather than the pre-rotated information.

I grepped through the nvidia-kernel distributed files but it looks like all the code is distributed as part of the binary image, not the .h/.c files I could get to. The bug behavior (dual screens are showing up, boundries just are pre-rotation) leads me to believe it should be an easy fix.
