Xinerama issues


So far I have been able to successfully setup hardy 8.04 with quad monitors. I have only found a few issues where things were a little off. One such issue is how I setup my monitors. Currently I run 4 monitors all at 1680x1050. The biggest issue that I am having is with how xinerama maximizes windows. When I maximize a window, it maximizes it across two screens. For me this is not optimal because I am constantly moving windows around while I work.

Does anyone know how I can correct this problem? I have attached 2 screenshots one of my left two monitors and one of my right two monitors. And I have also attached my xorg.conf

Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

Here is my xorg.conf

Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings:  version 1.0  (buildd@yellow)  Thu Jun  5 09:27:12 UTC 2008

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.

# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
