Blender 2.34 with twinview and xinerama

i have a GeForce FX card with dual outputs and a secondary PCI
card. running with TwinView and Xinerama yeilds 3 heads with
a single display. when i try to bring up blender, i get an error
stating that it fails to get a proper GLX context. of course this is
not the case if i disable xinerama or do not run the 3rd head.
i understand there is not an available glx context on the 3rd head
using xinerama, but blender doesnt seem quite smart enough to
figure this out. simple apps such as gears and whatnot are fine
with this. does anyone have any suggestions or tweaks? all three
heads should report as display 0 using xinerama so im not sure there
is any XF86Config voodoo to be leveraged.

much thanks.
