Angry nvidia-settings and twinview: no more than 640x480 on monitor when plugged within X

Hi everyone:

I've this sad sad problem with twinview:

when I connect a second monitor to my laptop with X already running (GeForce Go 6400) and I start nvidia-settings to configure it, I can select the 2nd monitor, but I'll get no more than 640x480 or resolution to select (see the attached image)....
Instead, if I start X with the 2nd monitor plugged, I'm able to select all the resolutions...


Relevant section of my Twinview conf is the following:

Section "Screen"

Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "Coolbits" "1"
Option "NoLogo" "true"
Option "TripleBuffer" "true"
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
Option "RenderAccel" "True"
Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "nvidia-auto-select"
EndSubSection

Option "TwinView" "True"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "True"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1280x800"

SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1280x800"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"

Modes "1280x800"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x800"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"

EndSubSection

Please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 6

and then generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
Lonni
