Default Twinview Dual Desktop

I have a GeForce 4 MX 440 Dual VGA card that works great running a twinview dual-monitor desktop where the single desktop spans two monitors. However, when I try to configure it to have two seperate desktops with the most recent drivers on Debian Sid I get my desired resolution on the left 17 inch monitor of 1024x768 but cannot get anything on the right 17 inch monitor over 640x480. If anyone has any suggestions as to why this might happen or if perhaps I've configured things wrong, I would greatly appreciate it. Here are the relevant sections of my XFree86 config file:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
Option "DPMS" "true"
VendorName "HWP"
ModelName "HWP0b15"
HorizSync 30 - 70 # DDC-probed
VertRefresh 50 - 120 # DDC-probed
EndSection
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor1"
Option "DPMS" "true"
VendorName "HWP"
ModelName "EV700"
HorizSync 30 - 69 # DDC-probed
VertRefresh 50 - 110 # DDC-probed
EndSection
Section "Device"
Option "hw_cursor"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Screen 0
EndSection
Section "Device"
Option "hw_cursor"
Identifier "Card1"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Screen 1
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultColorDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 32
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen1"
Device "Card1"
Monitor "Monitor1"
DefaultColorDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 32
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection


Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "XFree86 Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0"
Screen 1 "Screen1" rightOf "Screen0"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "PS/2 Mouse" "CorePointer"
EndSection


As a side note, after recompiling my kernel the new drivers installed flawlessly.

I will post this as soon as I get home and restart X with the alternate XF86Config-4 file. Thanks for responding.
