Dual Monitor: Can't drag windows between monitors - what gives?


I have a Radeon 9800 Pro connected to two monitors using both the DVI and VGA ports on my GFX-card.

I've successfully set it up and things are working quite well except the "moving windows between monitors" part.

I can drag MP3s from konqueror in on monitor onto XMMS on the other, but cannot drag windows this way.

I can also move icons from one "desktop" to another "desktop" (in other words: between these two monitors).

Has anyone been in this kind of trouble before?

I would really like to be able to I.E. move XMMS from one "desktop" to the other

I'm gonna post my xorg.conf here in case someone wants to check it out:

What desktop are you running?

Also, you might want to try the Xinerama option as noted below:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Multihead layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" LeftOf "Screen1"
        Screen      1  "Screen1" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        Option      "Xinerama" "on"
        Option      "Clone" "off"
EndSection
