Double GNOME UI with Debian and 3 Xinerama monitors


Hi,

I have a Debian 7.0 system which I'm trying to set up with 3 monitors. I'm using a Quadro NVS 420 card with the latest NVidia drivers. I configured it using Xinerama and the nvidia-settings utility, and the three desktops appear just fine, but on the main one all of the GNOME UI elements are duplicated, e.g. the menu items at the top black bar all appear twice. Each menu of the duplicates is fully functional so it's not just a display issue.

I don't even know where to look for what would cause this. Here is my xorg.conf:
Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings:  version 295.59  (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-03.nvidia.com)  Wed Jun  6 22:23:02 PDT 2012
