Desktop too big for monitor screen

I'm using Kubuntu 6.1 with dual monitors with a Nvidia card. No problems until I setup the dual monitors. Now I must mouse off the screen to pan the desktop into the viewable screen area. Is this a Nvidia driver problem or is there a setting I missed? All works fine when I return to a single monitor.

try turning down the resolution on the monitor that requires the panning. If the resolution is higher than it can handle it will require you to pan in order to use the entire screen.
