I tried adding multiple "Screen" sections in xorg.conf, but it didn't create separate X screens.
Are you using the propietary fglrx driver or the radeon one? I am not sure how would I do it with the radeon (or radeonhd) one, I think it enables xrandr by default so if you use radeon you should look into disabling xrandr for this (maybe there's a way to do it using xrandr, I don't really know, I hate it with passion).
I can provide you with a valid xorg.conf for the fglrx driver if you use that. Just let me know and I'll upload it to my server for you.

Well, I didn't mean that Twinview is problematic, just that you have to enable it and configure it (either using the graphical tool or editing xorg.conf). Once configured, it always worked for me without a single problem at all, just like for you.
