It was a very strange series of events. I first ran in to it maybe 4 or
5 months ago when I could not output video to a particular display
device (a panasonic video switcher via vga input) using the same
xineramascreen settings I had always used. All video played back on the
local monitor when connected to the switcher. All other output devices
were fine. I noticed this almost always after that on laptops with

nvidia settings application to adjust the resolution for the external
monitor -- it had worked using the built in windows 7 screen resolution
adjustment window (on the same laptop), but if I ever used the nvidia

I did notice that the nvidia application seemed to change the way the
"primary" screen was set. With the windows settings, the laptop screen
would be "primary" (as reported by qt which the gui is written in) and
when I used the nvidia app, it changed the reported primary screen to

However, this week I have seen the problem with amd cards as well. This
was also happening on all second output devices, even standard
monitors. That's when I threw in the towel and began using -x, -y &

seemed to have completely fixed the problem. I haven't had time to try
using any of this just at the command prompt since I only use it with my
gui. Don't know if there is some difference there because of my using
