Black border on the side of extended screens


I use OpenSuse 11.3 (64) with kde4, I have an intel built in graphics card (GM45 Express Chipset).

I always work with a second screen connected. I use krandrtray to set my display to extended. One 1680x1050 and one 1280x800. Now the right screen (whichever it is). Always displays a black vertical border (about 1 inch). Everything displays. But my mouse is also off by one inch, making it impossible to work on this one screen.

Any ideas what is happening here?

Do you need some more info? Output of commands etc?
