fullscreen opengl apps with twinview


I have a problem with apps starting in fullscreen, mostly games, after setting twinview on my Gf 4200 Ti. The application is showing on primary monitor, but with huge offset so I can't see things that are displayed. Imagine a situation when you run 800x600 window on 800x600 display, but with starting point ~300.200 instead of 0.0 All other space on that primary monitor is black, so as a half of a secondary one.
I don't know, maybe I screwed something with MetaModes, here's a part of my xorg.conf:

  Option "TwinView"
  Option "MetaModes"                    "CRT-1: 1024x768,CRT-0: 800x600;"
  Option "HorizSync"                      "CRT-1: 31-68, CRT-0: 31-60"
  Option "VertRefresh"                   "CRT-1: 50-85, CRT-0: 50-75"
  Option "TwinViewOrientation"     "LeftOf"
Anyway, I can't get more then 800x600 on CRT-0, but the monitor itself is absolutely capable for 1024. Any ideas? Maybe something with "Monitor" section? I've defined only one monitor:

Section "Monitor"
  Option       "CalcAlgorithm" "CheckDesktopGeometry"
  HorizSync    31-68
  Identifier   "Monitor[0]"
  ModelName    "1024X768@85HZ"
  VendorName   "--> VESA"
  VertRefresh  50-85
  UseModes     "Modes[0]"
and thats the definition of CRT-1. Should I also define a CRT-0? And why? Or Modes[0] should be expanded/changed?

Thanks for reading this
