NVIDIA 8500GT & CentOS 5.1 Display problems

My hardware is GEFORCE 8500GT. Lenovo 1280x1024 LCD Panel & CentOS 5.1
I installed latest NVIDIA* Switched to Twinview (1280x1024 CRT & 1024x768 TV-0). Added metamode. CRT-0 is primary. Everything is fine. But, when I open programs, for example, mozilla, it opens not on my CRT, but on TV-0. So every time I need to move new window with mouse from TV-0 to CRT-0.

Second thing is, then I turn TV-0 on, some gnome element on my CRT-0 streches. When I turn TV-0 of, it becomes ok.

And the last thing that screen on TV-0 little goes out of borders from both up,bottom, left and right side. Is there eny wa to fix it?


My xorg.cong is
