Gnome 2.20 - fglrx - multi head - screen size issues


I am using Gnome 2.20 with the fglrx driver in a multi-head setup. It's on an HP nc8430 Laptop which has the ATI X1600 Mobile chip.

Back in Gnome 2.18, I had dual screen set up fine. Both monitors showd their own display and screen (screen :0 and :1). The sizes were 1680x1050 (wide, :0) and 1280x1024 (regular, :1).

Now, since Gnome 2.19 and on, I am having sizing issues on the second screen (1280x1024). The geometry is correct for my mouse, eg. when the mouse hits the side of the visual screen it does move to the primary screen (second is 'left-of' primary). Though, the menu bars and maximized windows on that display are sized beyond the physical boundaries, rendering their off-display bits to be unreachable.

I am wondering, is this an Xorg issue? is this an fglrx issue or a Gnome issue?

Xorg-server is to maintain compatibility with fglrx.

Is there a known solution for this?
