Default Quadro NVS 290 + 185.18.14 = no dual monitor

Kubuntu Jaunty 9.04 32-bit
1 HP NVidia Quadro NVS 290 card (PN KN586AA) with a DMS-59 to 2 VGA cable
2 HP w22 monitors (native resolution = 1680x1050)

Twinview (i. e. 3360x1050) does not work - It works fine in 180.44 and 180.60 but does not work in 185.18.14.

The problem is tricky: the NVS 290 detects the monitor and paints on it but the monitor is never neable, so it goes to stand-by.

Single display works. Dual display using Xinerama does not work either.

This is fixed in 185.19, along with some colour-space problems I was seeing with 180.60 and older. 185.19 is quite unstable, though.
