Need a Desktop/Window Manager for multiple monitor setup.

I was using KDE 3.3 but that slowed down a LOT when I bumped up to three screens. Plus my programs keep losing their window focus.
Right now I'm using fluxbox, but that's really starting to bug me. None of the addons - most specifically fbDesk and fluxspace - support multiple screens, at least not in any way that I know of.
And I really want to have little panels that I can position around the screen that pop up when I move my mouse to the edge of the screen.(like in KDE and GNOME)... so right now I'm running kicker on top of fluxbox... which isn't very pretty...
Anyhow, if anyone knows of a good DE/WM or combination of tools to use I'd appreciate it. Oh, and I'd prefer it if there was a Gentoo ebuild for it as well. Thanx.
