[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#631225: xfce4: on dual head display second monitor *always* mirrors first monitor instead of being independent

Package: xfce4
Severity: normal

Apparently a recent upgrade broke the dual-head display again.  I have two monitors (different sizes/resolutions), and at least for a while it seemed to be doing the right thing (two independent screens), but since playing a game full screen which 'turned off' the independence, I can't get the displays to be independent via the Settings|Display applet.  I can get the displays to seperate by using --left-of in xrandr, but on reboot, that settings is lost and the display are again mirrored.
