Yeah, I understood. Iirc, you can't move an application from a $DISPLAY
to another, so that may be the problem. But what is puzzling me is the
fact that xfce4-panel still displays something when there's only head
available by $DISPLAY.

I'll investigate a bit more, but don't hold your breath. xinerama has
been replaced by XrandR stuff, and non-xinerama dual head is kind of
dead anyway.

I'll try to reproduce on a stable box with vesa and report back.

Stay tuned,
