Well, it definitely seems like something's fishy. For instance,
maximising windows in Fluxbox (which had the best Xinerama support
of all window managers I tried) now causes the window to extend
across both screens.
And then there's stuff like http://bugs.debian.org/428797 which
makes me think that there's some nasty bug somewhere, and it looks
like it's in X.org...
