Kicker doesn't respect screen resolution, but only after Moodin engine install??

Howdy Y'all,

So here it is,

I am runny Lenny -2.6.26 on AMD64 2.66G
KDE 3.5.9
Dual Head
Radeon HD2400 pro
Primary is 32" Westinghouse LCD 1366x768 -
Secondary is Dell 19" 1280x1024

The mouse is black, so's the keyboard

Anyway, I have installed the ATI Catalyst control center for the HD2400 Radeon card. Everything was just dandy till I messed with it. I wanted to pretty it up a little and so installed the moodin engine for the splash screen. At next login, The moodin works but it acts as if the screen is 1280x768 when in fact the ATI-CCC has it set appropriately at 1366x768. Now kicker is convinced that it is 1280x768 even though the background is 1366. Also, all windows when maximized respect the 1366x768, to the point of ignoring the panel at the bottom. They don't cover the panel, they just don't allow for it; They are falling below/behind it.

So, I removed moodin, completely. I also found in some of the config files where the panel width was set at 1280; I thought surely this was it. Even with these changes, the panels will not move past the 1280 barrier; Even to the point of being positioned on the right side of the desktop -86 pixels, which obviously cuts through the window, 'cause IT don't see the panel, etc., etc.

So, I figure there is a config file somewhere, or some sort of setting which I have obviously missed. And here's where you come in.....

Does moodin have a maximum of 1280 wide? Is it the dual screens? Is it Lenny? Does anyone know?

I also realize that there are probably details about my system which I have failed to provide, so just ask and I'll do my best.

Thanks heaps in advance,

Hope Y'all have a lovely day.
