Default TwinView + KDE4

Hello i got a problem runnig TwinView on my notebook, to do so i use nvidia-settings i go into X Server Display Configuration and there i see two layouts one is from my notebook's lcd flat panel and it got's a resolution of 1680x1050 and the second one is disabled it is a crt monitor with highest resolution 1024x768 so i click on it and choose twinview and apply all the settings twinview is running but on crt panel i got whole white screen it is empty if i move my mouse to the right i can see it on second monitor but still i think this is not what i expected i want to see the same screen on two separate monitors which have two diffrent resolutions. Is this even possible?

Holy run-on sentence, Batman.

I think what you're describing is a bug, but it may have been fixed recently. Which driver are you using? Please generate an nvidia-bug-report.log and attach it here.

You need to use "Clone" mode.

I use the newest drivers and nvidia-settings 177.80. In clone mode can' have two different resolutions and one more thing i'm a gentoo user and if i don' enable xinerama flag in some apps the look streched all over the screen. For example ut2004 and the display looks like this [1 2] and if i use xinerama i got [1][2]. So my question is do i need this xinerama flag? shouldn' it be done with nvidia-driver? Another question is about Hotkey Switching of Display Devices. Xorg.0.log says that:
(II) Open ACPI succesul (/var/run/acpid.socket)
(II) NVIDIA(0): ACPI display change hotkey events enabled: the X server is new
(II) NVIDIA(0):       enough to receive ACPI display change hotkey events.
and if i press a combination of buttons Fn+F5 to toggle betwen screens the screen blips black on lcd from my laptop and logfile says:
(II) PM Event received: Capability Changed
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "DFP-0:nvidia-auto-select+0+0@1680x1050"
but the sceond monitor never displays anything.

And this is mine xorg.conf:
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier      "Simple Layout"
        Screen          "Screen 1" 0 0
        Option          "AutoAddDevices"
        Option          "AutoEnableDevices"
        Option          "AllowEmptyInput"

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "VESA Framebuffer"
        Driver          "nvidia"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Screen 1"
        Device          "VESA Framebuffer"
        Option          "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

Section "Extensions"
        Option          "Composite" "Enable"
I use hal detect subsystem in xorg, so that is why it is so short. About nvidia-bug-report.log i will generate it tomorrow caz i'm not right now on my laptop and have to wait
