opensuse 11.3 nvidia gtx260 dual display (xinorama) extended desktop mouse problem

Hello everyone
long time reader of this great forum..

Recently installed OpenSuse 11.3 on my system,
Setup dual monitors w/ the latest Nvidia driver from Yast repo :

Initially twin view ( same desktop viewed on both monitors ) worked no problem

Once xinorama was enabled to extend the one desktop across both I encountered a mouse issue.

Main monitor is on the right, 2ndary on the left... When I drag the mouse from the right monitor over to the lest.. the cursor appears to get stuck on the left monitor's right hand edge.. it flickers as i move it around...

If I drag the mouse to the right a few whole mousepad lengths it will come back to the right...

its like fighting to bring it back..

What could I look at to determine the problem ?

Appreciate any input you might have.
